The women of England played an important part in keeping home and family safe during the turbulent civil wars which rent the fabric of English society between 1642 and 1658. This book explores the lives of the gentlewomen during that time and their valiant efforts in forestalling the capture of their homesteads. A very interesting and enlightening read.
Extensive endnotes, a chronology, bibliography and comprehensive index. A few portraits of some of the more notable familes have been included.
