Written in 1822, A New-England Tale is the first of Catharine Sedgwick's twenty novels published in her lifetime. It concerns the moral and religious development of a young orphan girl in rural New England, and provides an intriguing sketch of the social, political, and religious climate of early America, and of the methods of representation by early women writers. The editors' introduction locates the novel in its historical and political context, and provides a biographical sketch of Sedgwick.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a wonderful read..."--Gregory S. Jackson, University of Arizona "A detailed, well-edited introduction by Victoria Clements makes this...a refreshing, informative classroom tool....Engaging...highly recommended."--SEWSA News "A fine protrayal, from a woman's point of view, of a complex, multilayered New England."--Professor Veronic Makowsky, University of Connecticut "Invaluable."--Professor E.N. Feltskog, University of Wisconsin "Excellent Introduction, Notes and Bibliography. [A] very good value for students."--Dr. Nancy Lang, Marshall University Series review: "Oxford University Press's Early American Women Writers series, spearheaded by Cathy N. Davidson, features lovely uniform editions....Introductions by Davidson and other scholars place each novel in its literary and cultural milieu....They deserve widespread attention among feminist readers and scholars--if only for their portrayal of the lives, times, and concerns of early American women."--Belles Lettres
