The Sister of Mary Dyer ~ The High Price of Freedom   by   Ann Bell   |   See Bio >
A Biographical Novel

Convicted by the Puritans in 1660 for being a Quaker, Mary Dyer faced the gallows on the Boston Commons. Often misunderstood by her husband and six children, she turned her back on those who loved her for the higher principle of protesting the anti-Quaker Laws. 

What must it have been like to stand beneath the gallows and watch a loved one make the ultimate sacrifice for something you do not fully understand? 

Mary Dyer's sacrifice helped pave the way for our first amendment rights of the freedom of religion and speech and pointing out the need for the separation of church and state.


The Sister of Mary Dyer: The High Price of Freedom is an excellent Historical account of an English Puritan woman turned Quaker named Mary Dyer, hanged in Boston, for repeatedly defying the Puritan’s law of banning Quakers from the colonies.

It takes us through the life and times as it was, set in the 1600’s, and the personal trials and tribulations of one Mary Dyer. Her remarkable transference from Puritan to Quaker, and steadfast belief in what she believed in was an inspiration to her peers at the time.

As she began the mile-long march to the gallows to the Boston Commons, Mary Dryer displayed a sense of honour and pride seldom found in even men of that era. Her unshakable belief in the Quaker way enabled her to walk calmly to her death, and peacefully into her Lords arms.

Ann Bell has succeeded in capturing not only the life and times, but the very essence of what it means to be QUAKER.
This inspiring story is both uplifting and tragic in its detailed accounts of a now prominent historical figure.
