Meet the author of Seven Years of Grace!
Meet Sara Rath, the author of Seven Years of Grace at Vermont History Expo. This new book by the Society is a dramatized account of Achsa W. Sprague (1827–1862), who lectured for seven years on Spiritualism, the abolition of slavery, women’s rights, and prison reform. Grounded in the extensive collection of Sprague’s papers at the Vermont Historical Society, this fascinating tale includes trances, the brush of angel wings, and the love Achsa felt for a married man.
