Reader Reviews

Average Rating of 2 from 1 reviews: **

Young Charlotte Temple is seduced by the vile Montraville and it ruins both of their lives though Charlotte gets it worse than he does.There's a double standard where men can seduce women and are "sowing their wild oats" while the women are branded as harlots.While I think Charlotte was very gullible I also think that Montraville shouldn't have left her while she was pregnant and get married to Julia.I did not particularly like this book.
