Ethelinde, or the Recluse of the Lake.

SKU: 15699

Edited with a new Introduction and Notes by Ellen Moody. Smith [1749-1806] wrote to support herself and her 10 children. Her ten novels were highly popular in her day and are understood to have influenced others whose fame held up better, including Austen and Radcliffe. Ethelinde is pursued by the nefarious rake Davenant, but loves Montgomery. Dealing with adulterous love, cruel patriarchy, and corrupt patronage, the novel deals with many ethical questions. This first-ever paperback of the novel is from the unabridged text of the 5-volume 2nd edition of 1790. Valancourt. 2016. Paper. NEW. $21.00
