From the Early American Women Writers series, CHARLOTTE TEMPLE was a "best seller' that went through more than 200 editions. It tells of a beautiful English girl who at age 15 is courted by and runs away with a British lieutenant named Montraville. Once in America, Charlotte is abandoned by Montraville, who marries another woman and leaves to fight in the Revolutionary War.
