FULTON, NY – Local author Jo Ann Butler (left) greets customers and signs copies of her first published novel, A Scandalous Life: Rebel Puritan at a recent book signing event held at Backstreet Books & Bistro, 201 Oneida St.
Based on the true-life escapades of Butler’s eighth-great-grandmother, Herodias (Long) Hicks Gardner Porter, the compelling and sensitive historical novel explores the limited rights of women in a restrictive society, seen through the eyes of a 13-year old girl trapped in an abusive marriage.
