Summary:
Inspired by the historical settlement of Dogtown, MA, the author reimagines a community of castoffs -- widows, prostitutes, orphans, African-Americans and ne'er-do-wells -- all eking out a harsh living in the barren terrain of Cape Ann. Black Ruth, the African woman who dresses like a man and works as a stonemason; Mrs. Stanley, who runs the local brothel, and Judy Rhines, an unmarried white woman whose lover Cornelius is a freed slave, are among Dogtown's inhabitants who are considered suspect -- even witches -- by outsiders.
