Description: Join the Shrewsbury Public Library with Ed Londergan, author of "Unlike Any Other," a biographical novel about Bathsheba Spooner, for this talk about Spooner's life and times. Bathsheba was the daughter of Timothy Ruggles, French and Indian War general, president of the Stamp Act Congress, and a leading loyalist in Massachusetts during the Revolutionary War. Like him, Bathsheba was smart, strong-willed, and a staunch British loyalist. Forced to marry a man she didn't love, Bathsheba withstood her husband's abuse for years until a young Continental soldier entered her life. But when this well-heeled mother of three discovered she was pregnant with the soldier's child, her thoughts turned to murder.
