Down-easters, Volume 2
A remarkable piece of fiction first published in 1833. It is the story of two men's struggle for the love of the same woman, a widow. It blends the Gothic with the comic in a manner which will engross the reader till the very end. The story is especially appealing for its realistic depiction of New England and the Yankee character. Alluring!
