    Hardcover Description:

    The Minister’s Wooing is a historical novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe, first published in 1859. Set in 18th-century New England, the novel explores New England history, highlights the issue of slavery, and critiques the Calvinist theology in which Stowe was raised. Due to similarities in setting, comparisons are often drawn between this work and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. However, in contrast to Hawthorne’s The Scarlett Letter, The Minister’s Wooing is a "sentimental romance"; its central plot revolves around courtship and marriage. Moreover, Stowe’s exploration of the regional history of New England deals primarily with the domestic sphere, the New England response to slavery, and the psychological impact of the Calvinist doctrines of predestination and disinterested benevolence.
