She has a more overtly moralizing tone because in the US religious organizations were far more more forceful taking the space that perhaps class adherence had in the UK , but her horizons are secular in aim.
Alas one author she does not know was Jane Austen. Except for Austen, I felt Murray had been reading the same books I had. This is rare for me.

Stories of an individual woman's capability in the public sphere are accompanied by an insistence in the importance of building women's self-esteem "complacency" , as a foundation for economic independence. She was indeed radical. She reminds of me of other women in the later 17th century Lucy Hutchinson who were educated in a religious tradition in her case "universalism" became devoted to a husband who helped her develop her gifts.
John Murray was her second husband and it was his status a rich shipping mercant and career a teacher that enabled hers. She wrote in magazines and produced fiction and a play centered on women as a group interacting with one anther rather than women seeking men husbands, with courtship all the book would be about. Sarah Wentworth Morton, said to have been very pretty as seen in this portrait by Gilbert Stuart.
Harvey wanted to stress how Murray was involved in building a career for herself and devoted what class time there was to a quarrel she had in print with another woman journalist and poet at the time, Sarah Wentworth Morton , who had called herself Constantia too. Morton claimed the name was hers first, and she used it to signal her constancy to her husband.

I felt this focus undermined the respect for them Harvey was meaning to build. The story is as follows: Peter Sanford, a libertine male seduces Eliza Wharton, a flirtatious young woman; he has no intention of marrying her as beneath him , marries someone else while as his mistress she is gradually isolated; she becomes pregnant, gives birth, and dies shortly thereafter; no one attempts to go to her to help her.
What rivets the reader is the personality of the heroine, Eliza.

She has escaped marrying a elderly clergyman she did not like, and finds herself pressured to marry another clergyman, Rev J Boyer, who is a decent man and would be a good husband to her but bores her as he attempts to control and thwart what are her enjoyments. Each major character has a separate correspondent and their voices are all individuated, believable.
The novel becomes a satiric philosophical debate on what is friendship.
What is proper entertainment? Gradually her voice vanishes from the book, and we feel her punishment is unmerited. This is in contrast to a didactic parallel popular American novel by Susannah Rowson, Charlotte Temple also with a source in real American life at the time. I found myself unexpectedly really enjoying reading the novel; it was a page-turner until Eliza understandably falls into her strained depression and moves towards death.
She is so dependent on letters.
I found tears coming to my eyes as I read about her death. In her Introduction, Carla Mulford discusses the novels' importance in the development of American literature and as vivid reflections of the goal to establish a secure republic built on the virtue of its citizens. A local poem, historic and descriptive. A hymn for the Humane Society.
