THE WHISPERING ROD
A Tale of Old Massachusetts

by Nancy Kelley

The Whispering RodAbout the Book

The Whispering Rod tells the story of 14-year-old Hannah Pryor who lives with her father in Puritan Boston. In 1659, Quaker preacher Mary Dyer and two companions are about to be executed for breaking anti-Quaker laws. Fired by the injustice of the event, Hannah seeks to learn about Mary Dyer and finds that her own deceased mother was involved in past "scandals." Helped by friends, Hannah stands up to the Puritan elders and moves from childhood to adulthood during a period of social, political, and religious upheaval.

The story of Hannah Pryor brings to life the very different world of the Puritan Massachusetts Bay Colony in the mid-17th century. Yet the dramatic story of Quaker preacher Mary Dyer reveals a fight for human rights and sheds light on the influence of women on American history. Hannah’s courage, her coming of age from child to adult, and her sense that injustice should not be allowed are paralleled by the struggles against religious, racial, and social intolerance today.
