Evvie Drake Starts Over
Julia Whelan, Linda Holmes
Length: 9 hrs and 6 mins
In a sleepy seaside town in Maine, recently widowed Eveleth “Evvie” Drake rarely leaves her large, painfully empty house nearly a year after her husband’s death in a car crash. Everyone in town, even her best friend, Andy, thinks grief keeps her locked inside, and Evvie doesn’t correct them. Meanwhile, in New York City, Dean Tenney, former Major League pitcher and Andy’s childhood best friend, is wrestling with what miserable athletes living out their worst nightmares call the “yips”: he can’t throw straight anymore, and, even worse, he can’t figure out why.

The Winthrop Woman – Historical Novel Society
Written by Anya Seton
Review by Susanne Dunlap
A sprawling epic that covers the entire life of a woman whose vicissitudes and adventures formed a characteristic part of the early settlement of the United States, The Winthrop Woman follows the fortunes of Bess, a spirited young girl from Norfolk. Starting with her youth as the restless daughter of an apothecary who gives her heart away to a wild cousin, we follow Bess as she emigrates with her uncle John Winthrop’s family to establish the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1631.
Through family and state politics, Indian relations, and deeply personal stories of loss and suffering, Bess comes to exemplify the indomitable spirit of those who carved New England out of the inhospitable lands of the new world. Through her eyes, we watch the expansion out of Massachusetts west through Connecticut, and come to understand the fragile, combative relationship with the Dutch settlers in New Amsterdam. But the political history is really a backdrop to the deeply engrossing, beautifully written saga of one unconventional woman’s quest for love and redemption. A true page-turner, I could not put this novel down.
The Winthrop Woman is a magnificent book, scrupulously researched, with an unerring instinct for drama and pace. Her characters—even those of the Indians who form an important part of Bess’s life—are all sympathetic and complex, and although her constantly shifting point of view takes some getting used to, the absorbing whole is more than worth the effort.
This edition features a foreword by Philippa Gregory, which furnishes some fascinating background about Seton’s influences, and points out the proto-feminism in this work dating from a time when patriarchy was the dominant social paradigm.
The Winthrop Woman (Book Review)
I loved this book of historical fiction and give it five stars. Anya Seton is a master story teller, and a meticulously thorough researcher. This book about the early half of the 1600’s was a best seller back in 1958. I can see why, and it taught me much about the founding of New England, particularly the area near where I live.
It is the true story (based on surviving documents) of Elizabeth (Bess) Winthrop, niece (and daughter-in-law) to the rigid puritan John Winthrop who help found the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
The story begins in England before the migration to the New World in 1631, and tells a clear and unvarnished story of the Puritans, who focused on the Old Testament’s harsh decrees. When Elizabeth’s friend Anne Hutchinson–who we have a highway named after here– claimed that “God is Love,” she was excommunicated from the church in Boston as a heretic and banished.
Sympathizing with Anne Hutchinson’s view, eventually Elizabeth must flee too, and ends up the largest land owner in Greenwich, Connecticut, which at the time was just the wilds filled with natives. She was on friendly terms with those natives, although the mutually butchering times made that very difficult to do.
She ends up allying with the Dutch in New Amsterdam to avoid the tyrannical Puritans in New Haven and Stamford that are pressing on Greenwich from both sides. And while the Dutch were tolerant religiously (much to the consternation of their Puritan neighbors) Elizabeth’s alliance to them had its own difficulties and trials.
Bess was a woman well before her time in her strident need to follow her own conscience, be the master of her own fate, own her own land, and eventually love whom she chose. Her tumultuous history shows her to be a woman of uncommon fortitude and courage, and I cheered for her –and felt for her– the whole way through this long tome, straight on until it’s satisfying, but not overly sweet, ending.
I recommend this book highly to any one interested in the 1600’s in New England (particularly Connecticut), for you will come to understand it as never before. I think this novel would be great high school reading for homeschoolers (especially girls) as well. It would make a wonderful Masterpiece Theater series, if only they depicted American stories.
However, it is not a light undertaking, for while engrossing, this 586 page novel has small print, narrow margins and very little white on the page. It takes a long time to read it, but I enjoyed each minute of it, giving my husband daily updates as this epic progressed. Maybe consider listening to the 27 hours of the audio?
I read a copy from the library, but then bought my own at the recent Newtown library sale. You can see both versions below. This is a book I might read again someday. I’ve added this author’s book titled Katherine, to my reading list for some time in the future.
Meanwhile, I wish you all as much pluck, forbearance, beauty, and brave endurance as this strong minded heroine. She will not be forgotten, and it was tenaciously spirited people such as her that built this country we must defend and nurture now.

About the Program
Women’s and Gender Studies (WMST)
Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of academic study that draws on feminist ideas and scholarship to develop historical,
theoretical, and cross-cultural frameworks for the comparative study of women and
gender. Women’s Studies examines the category of gender and the subject of women (and
men) in terms of their different and changing roles and experiences throughout history
and across the world.
Since its inception, Women’s and Gender Studies has expanded to include gender studies,
men’s studies, gay/lesbian studies, third world feminisms, and a greater focus on
the intersection of gender, race, class, ethnicity, nationality, and sexuality among
other identities, subject positions, and systems of oppression. Women’s Studies scholarship
and activisim have made many contributions to academic and public discourses and debates
on issues of women and men and their gendered relationships to:
- sexuality and intimacy
- spirituality and religion
- the body and body politics
- state, law, and public policy
- health and reproductive rights
- systems of oppression and privilege
- family, social, and individual identities
- work, productive, and reproductive labor
- domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault
- history, art, music, culture, language, and literature
- contraception, pregnancy, motherhood, fatherhood
Currently in the United States, there are more than 600 women’s studies programs at
both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Among the goals of women’s and gender
studies is to promote greater knowledge of women’s experiences, perspectives, and
contributions to all aspects of society, including law, business, science, art, philosophy,
education, mathematics, technology, politics, economics, history, family, medicine,
and religion. Women’s studies also promotes a greater inclusion of women and women’s
contributions to all academic disciplines in order to correct a historical pattern
of neglect, under-representation, and trivialization of women.
Historical Society Presents: Anya Seton, Best-selling Author of ‘The Winthrop Woman,’ Chronicles Life of Elizabeth Feake
Anya Seton: A Writing Life
Zoom Lecture: September 22 at 7:00pm
Lucinda MacKethan, an acclaimed scholar of American literature and author of the newly published book Anya Seton: A Writing Life, will present an intimate look at Greenwich native Anya Seton’s creative process, how she balanced writing with raising three children and her conflicted relationship with reviewers. A compelling portrait emerges of a deeply dedicated writer whose life was full of inner turmoil.
In addition to masterpieces Katherine and The Winthrop Woman, Seton wrote eight other historical novels which are still widely beloved 60 years after their publication. Born in 1904, Seton was the daughter of celebrity writer Ernest Thompson and Grace Gallatin Seton, a leader in the women’s suffrage movement.
“My forte is story, and a peculiarly meticulous (fearful, yes) desire to weave historical fact into history. Make history come alive and as exciting as the past is to me.”

Officials say man who killed Black man and woman in Winthrop was working alone, are investigating ‘when he became radicalized’ – Boston News, Weather, Sports
WINTHROP, MASS. (WHDH) – Officials said they do not believe the man who shot and killed a Black man and woman in Winthrop on Saturday was working with others, but they are still investigating how he was “radicalized” into fatally shooting people in what is being investigated as a hate crime.
Nathan Allen, 28, of Winthrop, shot and killed retired state trooper David L. Green, 58, and Air Force Staff Sgt. Ramona Cooper, 60, after stealing a box truck and crashing it into a building Saturday afternoon, officials said. Investigators allegedly found racist and anti-Semitic writing from Allen, who allegedly called whites “apex predators.”
On Monday, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins said local officials have been working with the FBI while investigating Allen, and found racist writings in his handwriting from as recently as last week. She said community members have been worried about other potential attacks, but she emphasized she believed Allen was acting alone.
“We understand people are very afraid he was working with other people, at this stage of the investigation we are confident we don’t believe that to be true,” Rollins said. “I am confident in saying there was hate in this man’s heart … when he became radicalized, when he started believing these things, we are not certain yet. ”
Allen was later shot by a Winthrop police sergeant. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Winthrop officials said they would hold a neighborhood drop-in meeting at the Winthrop Senior Center on Wednesday to address trauma in the community, and would hold a vigil for Cooper and Green on Thursday at 7 p.m.

The women’s artistic gymnastics competition at the Tokyo Olympics began with qualifications.According to the results of performances on Sunday, the participants in the finals of the team (8 teams) and personal (24 athletes) all-around became known, as well as in four separate types (8 gymnasts in each): vault, floor exercise, balance beam and uneven bars. At the same time, in the finals of individual competitions, according to the rules, no more than two athletes from one team will be able to compete.
As expected, the main struggle in the team competition unfolded between representatives of the “big three” – ROC ( Lilia Akhaimova, Victoria Listunova, Angelina Melnikova, Vladislav Urazov ), China and the USA.At the same time, the rivalry between the first two teams turned out to be full-time, they played in the same group, and the advantage of the ROC team, albeit not a gigantic one, was visible on almost every apparatus. The athletes did not commit a single gross mistake. As a result, 171.629 points against 166.863 for the representatives of the Celestial Empire.
The main threat to the ROC team was represented by the American women performing in the next shift, led by the main star of modern gymnastics, four-time Olympic champion Simona Biles .But the favorites did not look perfect, allowing blots out of the blue. And in the complexity of their programs were far from the maximum. As a result, American gymnasts, despite Biles’ best efforts, did not manage to surpass the OCD team’s result of 170.562. And, this is, perhaps, the main sensation of the first day of the Olympic competition among women. It is already clear that on Tuesday, in the final of the team championship, the teams of the ROC and the USA will compete for the first place.

However, in the individual all-around, Bales, who dreamed of bringing Olympic competition in Tokyo five gold medals, did not miss the first place.Her result is 57.731. In second place is unexpectedly Brazilian Rebeca Andrade (57.399), and three representatives of the ROC team – Melnikova, Urazova and Listunova (she will not perform in the final according to the regulations) – are in fourth, fifth and sixth places, respectively. This trio led after the performance in their group, but the representatives of the New World were able to move them.
Biles, winner of all gymnastics world championships since 2013, leads the vault after qualifying.Andrade also turned out to be the second one. The best of the ROC team – Akhaimova, representing St. Petersburg – is in sixth position, and Melnikova also made it to the final.
Two ROC gymnasts will also compete in uneven bars. The third step after qualification was taken by Anastasia Ilyankova , who performs only in the individual competition. After Ilyankova, Melnikova is located – this is the third type, for which Angelina qualified for the final. And the two-time world champion Belgian Nina Derval took the first place here.
In the floor exercise, a surprise was presented by the veteran of Italian gymnastics, the 2006 world champion in absolute superiority Vanessa Ferrari , who is leading after qualifying, ahead of Bayles. From the ROC team, Melnikova and Listunova again got the opportunity to compete for medals, who shared 6th place with 14 points.
The log turned out to be a purely Chinese species, the three first places out of four were staked out by the representatives of this country – Guan Chengchen , Tang Xijing and Lu Yufi .It will be very difficult to stop this hegemony, but Urazova, who closed the top eight, will try to spoil the mood of the gymnasts of the Celestial Empire.

90,000 names of Russian winners of the prestigious international prize
The names of ten young Russian women scientists who have been awarded the national L’ORÉAL-UNESCO scholarship “For Women in Science” have been announced in Moscow.National winners have been selected in Russia since 2007. The best of the best young scientists from among the fair sex are determined by an authoritative jury, including representatives of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The organizers decided to postpone the traditional solemn award ceremony of this year. However, the celebration of the winners has not been canceled at all. Still, this is a beautiful event, which took place last year at the Pashkov House, and it is a real holiday for the laureates and their families. The celebration will take place next year, when the winners of both 2020 and 2021 will be invited to Moscow.
In our country, women scientists traditionally conduct advanced research on an equal basis with men. However, even in Russia, the majority of highly promising female researchers at various stages of their careers “fall out of the race” due to family reasons. As a result, not many women remain in leadership positions. But the development of science, like other areas, very much depends on the decisions made. If the teams of scientific laboratories and research institutes are not balanced, do not consider the proposals put forward by women, then the whole process suffers, and with it the entire global scientific progress.
By the way, in the whole world, even despite the significant discoveries of women scientists, the fair sex still represents only 29% of the total number of scientists. Numerous studies have shown that women’s ideas receive less funding and the results of their work are less likely to receive the recognition they deserve. Thus, only 3% of the Nobel prizes in science have ever been awarded to women.
The L’ORÉAL-UNESCO For Women in Science program is designed to make a difference.The slogan of the program: “The world needs science, science needs women.”
The creators of the program are confident that the support of outstanding women scientists is a prerequisite for promoting gender equality in science. And the point, of course, is not a simple equalization of the number of places in the team, frankly, for the sake of time. Previously, it has been proven that teams with approximately equal numbers of participants of both genders do better in a wide variety of areas. Sometimes, where the solution proposed by the man does not fit, the woman finds a “workaround”, offers a compromise.And vice versa. Where the woman offers a softer solution, the man decides to take the risk, and the whole team will get a better result.
The program has awarded scholarships to young women scientists for 14 years. This is not only recognition and mention in the media, which add confidence to many, but also financial assistance to talented and promising specialists in various fields of knowledge who are planning to develop their careers in Russia.
“Today, in the face of global challenges, it is vital to provide long-term support to women scientists.Because science is the business of all mankind. Giving women their rightful place in science and society means empowering the world to effectively address urgent health, climate change and artificial intelligence challenges, ”says Claudio Cavicholi, CEO of L’Oréal in Russia and the CIS.
