Denise Heinze | 'The Brief and True Report of Temperance Flowerdew' (online)

This event will be hosted via Zoom Webinar.

Determined to set the historical record straight, and clear her conscience, Temperance Flowerdew--the wife of Virginia's first two governors--puts quill to paper, recounting the hardships that nearly brought the Jamestown colony to its knees, and the extraordinary sacrifice of her servant girl, Lily.

"This richly researched novel, in an elegant narrative using the vernacular of the seventeenth century, is a must-read for those who love historical fiction and for all who enjoy a compelling drama well told. I read this captivating book straight through." –Anna Jean Mayhew, author of Tomorrow's BreadThe Dry Grass of August

"A literary thriller. This remarkable novel infuses the history of the Jamestown experiment with the tale of two women, a mistress and her servant, who find in one another the full measure of sacrifice and survival. This story is spun of silk and rendered in blood." –Elaine Neil Orr, author of Swimming Between Worlds

Denise Heinze, a former literature professor and a PhD graduate of Duke University, writes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. She is the author of a scholarly work on Toni Morrison, and the eco-thriller Sally St. Johns. A descendant of Louisa May Alcott, she lives in North Carolina.
