Kelley,Nancy._The whispering rod._White Maine, 2001
Hannah whose mother died in her childbirth,lives in Puritan
Boston with her father, an Elder of the town, in the spring
of 1659.  The people and powers of Boston do not like the
Quakers who are becoming more vocal so they pass laws to get
rid of them.  Eventually they execute some of the Quakers.
This 167 page book is a good tale of religious intolerance
which is not written in a black and white fashion.  Hannah
is confused and becomes more so when she tries to find out
more about the mother she never knew.  This book is good
historical fiction and a great discussion starter.  There is
a bibliography at the end of the book.
