Emma Garnett Tate was born before the Civil War, and before her long life is over (she tells this story from the vantage point of old age) , she'll head north and marry a Boston Lowell. Emma's father is, predicably, astonishingly cruel to his family and slaves alike, her mother long-suffering, and Emma herself "too eager to know matters that would do her no good in making a marriage." The novel opens with a murder that effectively sums up the contradictions of antebellum culture. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 273 pages; 31998u View more info
