  6. I've recently come across the early London Quakers at Ratcliff when researching family tree. What courageous people they were to be so committed to their beliefs, literally sticking their necks out...Love to read your findings.

    I am a 10th Great Grandson of Mary's through William and Freelove Dyer Shreve. I have been working on my family tree since I was a teenager, and now I am graduating college. I believe this book will be a wealth of knowledge and an excellent read!

  16. Mary Barrett Dyer is my grandmother, 7 times removed through her son, William. I have read "Mary Dyer, Illustrated" and I'm currently reading "Mary Dyer, For such a Time as This". The voracious reader that I am I'm looking forward to reading "The Dyers of London, Boston & Newport" whether I win or not. The saga of Mary and William has been a legend in my family for as long as I can remember. I'm 77-years-old. My mother was Alice Loan Dyer, daughter of Libbeus Curtis Dyer. My interest is not simply a recent interest of mine. Mary has always been a member of my family.

    Please keep 'em coming Christy.

  17. Would love to read about the history and findings of Mary Dyer's life. Even better to know you're related to her. -Serene K.

  18. I would.LOVE to have your book because I love genealogical research, history and study, that is interwoven with exciting true drama, while you the writer step our minds back in time and unravel Mary's heroic acts of courage. All of this history mystery during a period of time that gets frozen in one's mind.

    Plus, because I love the author too and when you are rich and famous I'll have an autograph book that I can auction in order to use in my elder years to be able to eat as.my vision by that time will be long gone and the book would only be taking up space and collecting dust! Ashes to ashes and dust to dust I by ALLodi means have to have a copy of your book. It is a MUST!

    There, has.my comments qualified me? ;)


    ♡ to you my friend. Stephanie Mason ;)
