Edited with an introduction and notes by Avril Horner and Sue Zlosnik. Jane Austen wrote in a letter that she "was very much amused by it" and "tore through the third volume." Edgar Allen Poe highly recommended it. A comic novel originally published in 1813 then badly neglected for almost a century. Revived by Valancourt Press in this scholarly edition with a brand new introduction, unabridged first edition, and detailed endnotes. Farmer's daughter Cherry reads too many Gothic novels, renames herself Cherubina, she runs away and has a series of adventures while trying to live like a romantic heroine. Will she have her wits about her when she is really challenged by a devious man? 2011. Pb. NEW. $17.00
