The hilarious adventures of a woman who believes everything she reads--and the only thing she reads is romance fiction. This early American novel is both more interesting and more accessible for a modern reader than Charlotte Lennox's The Female Quixote. And since Tenney's novel sticks with its misguided, self-styled heroine for her whole life, it's also both more affecting and more effective as a cautionary tale.
