Ruth of Boston

James Otis

Step back in time and navigate the challenges of the New World with Ruth, a ten-year-old Puritan girl setting roots in what would soon become the bustling heart of New England, Boston. In this evocative tale by James Otis, the richness of Puritan daily life unfolds, from the simplicity of preparing meals and attending church, to the rigor of schoolwork and household tasks.


But it's not just the daily routines that shape Ruth's world; her interactions with the native tribes and her perspective on unfolding historical events provide a unique window into the Puritan ethos. Join Ruth's journey and immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of life, faith, and discovery in early Boston. Experience history as it weaves its story through the eyes of a young settler.
