"Anyone interested in early modern women’s writing, or in Quakers more generally, will find here an extraordinary and fascinating range of materials. I felt positively excited just reading the list of contents, and was delighted to find, too, that the headnotes to the pieces are well designed, giving the kinds of contextual and other information that a reader might most need, and drawing on the best sources when providing those contexts. The annotation is also most useful, enabling readers to understand exactly how the writers are transforming their sources to produce their new messages. Given the excellent prior work of both the editors, none of this is surprising, but it is cause for celebration."
