Rekindled By Teresa Irizarry Review
Rekindled is a historical fiction about how Roger Williams becomes the original architect of the separation of church and state. He must survive the men that intend to silence him in order to engineer and demonstrate a new society structure that will protect people voicing ideas and heartfelt convictions while keeping civil peace. If he fails, the tragedy of needless loss of life and livelihood will continue unabated on both sides of the Atlantic. Roger Williams obtained the first charter for the colony of Rhode Island in 1644, as an explicit experiment in the separation of church and state.
Rekindled is also a historical fiction about Miantonomoh, an Algonquian prince from the elite line called the Steward rulers. He must prove himself a competent general, diplomat, and family man to lead the Narragansett and other Algonquian. If none like Miantonomoh succeeds cruel English puppet prince Uncas will rule but rapidly lose followers.
Teresa Irizarry was born in Houston, Texas, and raised in Utah, Kansas, and Texas. She lives in New Jersey and Arizona. She trained to be a chemist until the last semester of undergraduate school, when she realized she would graduate more quickly with a degree in mathematics. Now she satisfies her chemical curiosity by cooking in the kitchen, sometimes to the chagrin of her children. For many years she worked as an engineer for a large corporation.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- Sometimes I have harder time getting through this type of book and will find myself yawning and trying to not lose focus. I am not saying that this book is boring it is just very long and made it have a school book feel. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to spend time getting a very in depth story along with total historical fiction.
