As stated in the Foreword, "These stories, thematically related, are arranged chronologically from 1630 to the present day and are designed to trace, by the use of fiction and dramatized history, the rise and fall of the Puritan ethic in New York and New England." A vivid, turbulent saga of New York and New England bluebloods -both real and fictional- who cast a long shadow over our country's history- and kept it's darkest secrets.
