A microhistory of a never-married English gentlewoman named Elizabeth Isham, this book centres on an extremely rare piece of women's writing - a recently discovered 60,000-word spiritual autobiography held in Princeton's manuscript collections that she penned around 1639. The autobiography isunmatched in providing an inside view of her family relations, her religious beliefs, her reading habits and, most sensationally, the reasons why she chose never to marry despite desires to the contrary held by her male kin, particularly Sir John Isham, her father. Based on the autobiography, combined with extensive research of the Isham family papers now housed at the county record office in Northampton, this book restores our historical memory of Elizabeth and her female relations, expanding our understanding and knowledge about patriarchy, piety andsinglehood in early modern England.

Aurora Floyd, Tochter aus bestem Haus, kehrt von einer Pariser Privatschule zurück nach Felden Woods, dem Landsitz ihres Vaters. Ihr Start ins gesellschaftliche Leben scheint perfekt, doch etwas muss in Paris geschehen sein, über das Aurora nicht reden will. Auch ihrem Verlobten gegenüber verweigert sie die Wahrheit, und so kommt es zum Bruch. Da wird die Leiche eines Mannes nahe Felden Woods entdeckt und Aurora des Mordes beschuldigt. Ihr Schweigen droht Aurora und der gesamten Familie zum Verhängnis zu werden.
