- Hilary Holladay's book of poems The Dreams of Mary Rowlandson (Loom Press, 2006) recreates her capture by Indians in poetic vignettes, using epigraphs from Rowlandson's own narrative in addition.
Flight of the Sparrow, a novel by Amy Belding Brown (2014), reimagines Rowlandson's experiences as if she were a woman at odds with the strictures of her minister husband and Puritan culture in general. In the novel, Increase Mather edits and corrupts her manuscript, changing it to reflect a rigid world view that Mary has, through her experiences, grown beyond.
