From the Back Cover:

The Coquette, one of the two 'best-selling' American novels of the 18th century, tells the much-publicized story of the seduction and death of Elizabeth Whitman, a poet from Hartford, Connecticut. Written as a series of letters-between the heroine and her friends and lovers-it describes her long, tortuous courtship by two men, neither of whom perfectly suits her.

Review:

"This novel captures very well the dilemma of late 18th-Century American women. Despite their own misgivings about reading a novel of this sort students became caught up in Eliza Wharton's plight and quickly understood the forces at work in her life. It makes a great text for class
discussions."--Sonya Michel, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
