Brought up by her widowed father in a remote English castle, Arabella resorts to reading the French novels popular in her mother's youth.

Sophia by Charlotte Lennox ( Book )
20 editions published between 1762 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first novel to be written for serial publication by a major female author, Sophia follows the story of two siblings, the virtuous and well-read eponymous heroine and her flighty and coquettish sister. While the latter leads a vapid life in the fashionable world of London, the former flees from a potential seducer to the country, where she pursues true friendship, learning, and an independent living. Previously out of print, the novel explores such issues as the place of female education, the opposition of city and country, the emergence of the literary marketplace, and the development of the individual." "This Broadview edition reproduces images from the novel's original serial publication and also includes other articles from Lennox's periodical The Lady's Museum, contemporary reviews of Sophia, and writings on sentimentalism."--Jacket

The life of Harriot Stuart, written by herself by Charlotte Lennox ( Book )
9 editions published between 1771 and 2010 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written in the popular memoir form, The Life of Harriot Stuart is also intriguing to us for what it reveals, via the use Lennox herself made of it later in her life, of the struggles of an ambitious, shrewd, independent-minded woman writer to be at once professionally accepted and thus economically secure, and yet to maintain her identity. Faced with a literary marketplace where professional well-being necessitated female deference to such influential male writers as Johnson and Richardson, and a marriage that required the same of her as a wife, Lennox allowed the facts of Harriot's life to be viewed as autobiographical. The life of her first heroine seems to have provided Lennox with an escape, serving as a kind of wish-fulfillment later in a life that did not give her opportunities for strong, passionate, individualistic behavior
