Interesting Piece of Americana 1 April 2000
By Michael D. Lichfield - Published on
Format: Paperback
While vastly inferior to Jane Austen, who followed a few years later, Rowson does stand out as one of the better early-American writers. In a style foreshadowing Harriet Beecher Stowe, Rowson shows how life punishes vice. The second book, Lucy Temple, is less pedantic and more entertaining. This book is best for enthusiasts of early American Literature.
A Good Read 6 Nov. 2014

I teach the novel Charlotte Temple in my British Literature class as a lead in to Pride and Prejudice. The kids liked it. It is short and brings up many of the themes of Pride and Prejudice. Although few people today have even heard of this book, it was a huge bestseller in its day. In fact, until the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin, this was the best selling novel in the United States. Rowson was an English woman who spent many years in the United States and among other things, started a long running girls' school in the US.

It seems Lucy makes better choices than her mother did. However, perhaps it is also due to luck concerning her circumstances.
British Literature to American Literature 3 Dec. 2012

I really enjoyed the simply writing style of Rowson. While I really enjoyed the story, she's very much trying to teach us a lesson with this book. While Charlotte's situation is greatly outdated, the story made me appreciate the way women's rights have changed.

Wondrous! 4 Nov. 2011
By nahm day ploom - Published on
Format: Paperback
A shimmering example of subtle prose and authorial restraint. More writers today ought tackle such age-old issues with such delicacy and charm.
