Some would say my life is perfect. But I'm here to tell you that it's not. I lost my father in a boating accident when I was eight years old. He was the love of my life and I was his princess. I never got over his death, even after my mother, Madeline, married my father's best friend, Edward. She was a big believer in fate. I wasn't. Fate had done me wrong and left me with an emptiness that could never be filled. Not only did I lose my father that day, I also lost my best friend. After landing my dream job in New York City, I met a very sexy man named Andrew London. I fell head over heels for him instantly, and I was sure he was the one who could fill the emptiness I felt inside. I felt it every time we were together, and he loved me like no other man had. I ignored the signs from the beginning because I was so immersed in him. Then one day, everything unfolded, and I found myself in a relationship that was built on nothing but deceit from the very start. I couldn't understand why he would do this to me until I discovered the truth behind his lies.
Susanah Shaw Romney locates the foundations of the early modern Dutch empire in interpersonal transactions among women and men. As West India Company ships began sailing westward in the early seventeenth century, soldiers, sailors, and settlers drew on kin and social relationships to function within an Atlantic economy and the nascent colony of New Netherland.
In the greater Hudson Valley, Dutch newcomers, Native American residents, and enslaved Africans wove a series of intimate networks that reached from the West India Company slave house on Manhattan, to the Haudenosaunee longhouses along the Mohawk River, to the inns and alleys of maritime Amsterdam. Using vivid stories culled from Dutch-language archives, Romney brings to the fore the essential role of women in forming and securing these relationships, and she reveals how a dense web of these intimate networks created imperial structures from the ground up. These structures were equally dependent on male and female labor and rested on small- and large-scale economic exchanges between people from all backgrounds. This work pioneers a new understanding of the development of early modern empire as arising out of personal ties.
