“Families of the Heart” “is an innovative study”

Families of the Heart: Surrogate Relations in the Eighteenth-Century British Novel

by Ann Campbell

Families of the Heart offers a new view of sentimental fiction through the lens of familial relations. . . . I encourage scholars who are interested in feminist criticism and eighteenth-century sentimental fiction, society, and family to read this book: it is an innovative study of women’s hearts, minds, and moralities via their choices of surrogate family members.”
