About Book

Midwest Book Review
Lydia Maria Child was a writer, magazine publisher, and one of the most outspoken women abolitionists in 19th century New England. Defying the norms of gender and class decorum, she promoted interracial marriage as a way that blacks and whites could come to view each other with sympathy and understanding. Through her novel, she intended to portray the discovery of historical wrongs as the first step to confronting and changing the present state of race relations. Ably edited by Dana D. Nelson in a new paperback edition, A Romance Of The Republic is a valuable look at the beginnings of the struggle to establish a more equitable nation. A Romance Of The Republic is as engaging, thought-provoking, and needed social commentary as any book written in the 19th or 20th centuries combined.

Book Description
Mr. Fitzgerald lingered on the wharf till the vessel containing his treasure was no longer visible. Then he returned to the carriage, and was driven to his hotel. Notwithstanding a day of very unusual excitement and fatigue, when he retired to rest he felt no inclination to sleep. Rosabella floated before him as he had first seen her, a radiant vision of beauty surrounded by flowers. He recalled the shy pride and maidenly modesty with which she had met his ardent glances and impassioned words.

What are you going to do with yourself this evening, Alfred? said Mr. Royal to his companion, as they issued from his counting-house in New Orleans. "Perhaps I ought to apologize for not calling you Mr. King, considering the shortness of our acquaintance; but your father and I were like brothers in our youth, and you resemble him so much, I can hardly realize that you are not he himself, and I still a young man.
