Under Household Government

I just finished reading a great book entitled "Under Household Government"  by M. Michelle Jarrett Morris.  The book is subtitled Sex and Family in Puritan Massachusetts. It was published in 2013 by Harvard Press. 

I got the book from my Library through the intersytem loan, as it seems be hard to find. 

The book takes a really close look at the Puritan family structure and how they governed themselves.  It reviews multiple cases that were brought to the courts for trial.  If you have any interest in Puritan life I would recommend this excellent book.
