I found this a great and thought provoking book chronicling the gradual deterioration of the Puritan ethic in a series of nine short stories featuring Winthrop descendants two real seven fictional from 1630 until 1973 The Winthrop Covenant was based on a belief that God would bless this great American experiment as long as we remained obedient The fly in this anointing ointment was that their God was a stern legalist focused on judgment and punishment who valued a dry obedience to law and uncompromising duty to eually stern authorities made in his image with mercy and compassion never entering their minds The Covenant is kept by the elect the right people and the smug delusion of sanctity could be kept alive only by shutting out notice of or any feelings of guilt toward the others the non elect such as Native Americans non WASP immigrants slaves and the wrongly accused and punished who are just collateral damage Better 10 innocents erroneously executed than just one sinner escaping judgment and righteous punishment Thus the legal profession and private men s clubs become settings for many of the stories two sanctuaries that provided the latter day Puritan elect with the illusion of safety and approval This dry bloodless Covenant is carried on as a mission through the generations who have a bad habit of marrying or giving birth to iconoclasts who uestion the value of a life without compassion and passion a life of head and behavior that ignores heart and mercy and thus in spite of its piety can never find its own soul The answer to what way leads to God obedience or mercy seems to have an obvious answer both together However although one iconoclastic wife astutely observes that the Puritans are better at finding an antichrist to battle than they are at finding a Christ the iconoclasts themselves have nothing positive to offer They are merely destructive to the Puritan s ethic They are only effective at being antipuritan rather than offering effective alternatives In view of the direction of this society since the 1970 s one can t help but speculate if maybe the elect did indeed have good reason to so fear compromise In the intervening years the waning of the Puritan ethic and the compromises meant to infuse blood into their mission has not resulted in bringing together the best of both duty and passion but seems to be indeed leading to the death of both and possibly the death of the American experiment just as Gov John Winthrop feared Instead of joining duty and passion to bring about a living faith and a vital American spirit we instead seem to be choosing a very empty nihilistic culture of neither the very thing the Puritans hoped that they left behind in Europe I wished Auchincloss would have added subseuent chapters since 1973 to see if he still approved of where the demise of the Puritan ethic would lead us Auchincloss was deservedly harsh to the Puritan standard bearers in this book but even though I am not a Puritan or a legalist I must admit I prefer the Puritan ethic to no ethic at all Truly like John Winthrop I do not see how God can continue to bless the nihilistic straw man America we are becoming

This is a curious little book actually the first Auchincloss I have read It s about generations of Winthrops from the founding of the colonies until the 1960 s Auchincloss has uite an ability to dream up scenarios for sets of people this is like ten short stories The dialogue is curious No one talks the way these characters do yet that is the method by which most of the stories are told Sometimes people keep journals or write letters and uote themselves but the ponderous conversations are not about how people sound but the mechanism for conveying the story Surprisingly with little effort I was pulled into each cameo of a story and could muse on the threads of moral approach that are being passed from father to son It took me a long time to read short though it is But worth it I ll refer to it often
