The Power of Sympathy and the Coquette (Penguin Classics) Paperback – November 1, 1996
by William Hill Brown (Author), Hannah Webster Foster (Author)

Written in epistolary form and drawn from actual events, Brown’s The Power of Sympathy (1789) and Foster’s The Coquette (1797) were two of the earliest novels published in the United States. Both novels reflect the eighteenth-century preoccupation with the role of women as safe keepers of the young country’s morality.
