The history of Miss Betsy Thoughtless by Eliza Fowler Haywood( Book )

51 editions published between 1783 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A lively, pretty young orphan with a large fortune, Miss Betsy Thoughtless is courted by several eligible suitors. Enjoying their adoration, she dallies with their affections and postpones marriage. Her flirtatiousness, however, alienates the right man, and scares her guardian into marrying her off to a brutish husband. This is one of the first novels (1751) to depict a heroine questioning the sexual double standard and institution of marriage."--Publisher's description

The history of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy by Eliza Fowler Haywood( Book )

14 editions published between 1785 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The History of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy, originally published as three volumes in 1753, is the last work by the prolific English novelist Eliza Haywood. Out of print since the early nineteenth century and never available in an edited and fully-annotated modern edition such as this, Haywood's novel is an important early example of the sentimental novel of domestic manners. In its depiction of marriage and courtship among the leisure class of the mid-eighteenth century, Haywood's novel is remarkable for its unsentimental realism. Book jacket."--Jacket
