Review: Haunted Chambers

From Freemason Information:
“Haunted Chambers“, for the first time ever, presents not only the most complete list of early women Freemasons but also as much detail about their lives as can still be found. Here are their stories, long suppressed, ignored and marginalized. They include medieval women stone cutters; so-called “adoptive” women Freemasons; an aristocrat; a countess; an early New Brunswick settler; a war hero; a writer of women’s rights; an immigrant Irish girl; the famed sculptress of Abraham Lincoln’s statue in the US Capitol Rotunda and many whose names are now lost.

Some will find this book a challenge. Some would rather it never had been written, let alone published. “Haunted Chambers” is highly recommended to anyone who wants the actual history of these early women Freemasons and aren’t afraid to read it.

Wow- sounds deep. I guess this is a side we don't hear much about. Thanks:)

I'm Karen Kidd, author of this book. I've very excited you decided to post this here. Originally, my book was intended for a Masonic audience but I nursed a secret hope it would be recognized as contributing to women's history studies as well. I guess it has :-)

Thank you.
