The author explores antebellum America's anti-Catholic imagination, how it informed the Beecher family, and how Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel The Minister's Wooing responded to that ethos. Rejecting her family's and her nation's anti-Catholicism, Stowe portrays an ideal, sympathetic community of Catholic and Protestant women in the New England home.
