A revision of Letters Between Emilia and Harriet, 1762. The overwhelming goodness of the heroine, Caroline Herbert, triumphs over fashionable vagaries, and restores the affections of a wandering husband. Some merciful relief from Mrs Herbert's severe virtue is to be found in the character of Miss Clara Woodford, a vivacious young lady who delights in exciting admiration, but who herself ends the novel vowing to become a pattern of virtue.
