Here Are Some Good Books

 Faith on Trial: Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science and the First Amendment, Plaidswede, published 2014. Peter A. Wallner departs from the role of presidential historian, to document a sensational turn-of-the century court trial involving the aging founder of Christian Science. The story played out across the country in the nationís tabloids, adding to legend of Yellow Journalism in its prime. The players include celebrity writers Willa Cather and Mark Twain, and one of the Granite Stateís most powerful and colorful personalities, Publisher, US Senator, and Secretary of the Navy, William Eaton Chandler.  Like his two-volume biography of President Franklin Pierce, Wallner combines his talent for careful research and a clean, clear writing style that is well worth the read on a snowing New Hampshire night, or on a not summer's day at the beach.
