Description
Believed by her followers to have been the second incarnation of Christ, Ann Lee may be one of the most extraordinary and mysterious women in Western history. From humble origins in Manchester, England, she became the visionary religious leader of the Shakers—a small religious cult characterized by wild shaking, impassioned singing and dancing, speaking in tongues, and a belief that the end of the world was near. When she died in America at the age of 48, Ann Lee had brought her faithful to a new land on the eve of the American Revolution and had left behind a religious movement that was to have thousands of followers. This "elegantly written life of the enigmatic and powerfully charismatic Shaker prophet" (Kirkus Reviews) is an account of the life and times of Ann Lee and her disciples; it takes them from New York to New England, where they meet with resistance—and escalating violence—along the way.

"This splendid biography … offers rational insight into the power of belief."—New Yorker
