The same way it displays similarities, it also shows us the differences, that in this case do not create discrepancies if not are colors that contribute to give equilibrium and strengh to the portrait painted by the author. Two cities, two scenaries, two histories and only one heart. This book is an excercise of the love which stands on the basic points of societies, faith, liberty, patriotism, family, dignity, and strong vocation for liberty. This book is a tribute to the birth city and to the city that has adopted her and in which she has materialized the purpose of her life.

The strong desire and compasion that the author demonstrates, engulfs the readers with the passion and love for Rhode Island and its founders. She has researched the struggle and persecution endured by those searching for freedom of speech and religion. There is so much history in this state, how the industrial revolution started is just an example of it. I hope the reader come away feeling inspired to share this wonderful book with their families and friends.
