Cathy N. Davidson offers a completely corrected edition, with a new introduction, of Charlotte Temple, the most widely read novel in America until Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. Charlotte Temple tells the story of a young English girl, whose liaison with a British officer led her to Revolutionary America, where she was abandoned and died giving birth to an illegitimate child. Though no evidence exists to prove the existence of a real Charlotte, the author insisted that it was a "tale of truth" and wrote it to be "of service to [the]...young and unprotected woman in her first entrance into life."
