Read "The Widow's War" by Sally Gunning and join our discussion!

Married for twenty years, Lyddie is used to the trials of being a whaler's wife in the Cape Cod village of Satucket, Massachusetts. When her worst fear is realized and he doesn't return, she finds herself doubly cursed. She is overwhelmed by grief, and her property and rights are now legally in the hands of her nearest male relative: her daughter's overbearing husband, whom Lyddie cannot abide. Lyddie decides to challenge both law and custom for control of her destiny, but she soon discovers the price of her bold "war" for personal freedom to be heartbreakingly dear.
