The second of Mary Brunton's (1778-1818) three novels.
"A great novel written in the first person which tells of a spoiled young woman's journey to maturity and love. Great details of the London season and Scottish city and country life. Novel covers great themes such as jealousy, pride, suicide, sexual harassment, the oppression of the poor, true friendship, and true love. The novel includes also a great ball scene, a fashionable auction scene, a wonderful masquerade scene, a scary madhouse scene, and some vivid depictions of the horror of poverty." - Cathy Decker.
