The woman-Eliza Wharton-is based on a fictional account of the poet Elizabeth Whitman. The entire book is a series of letters between Eliza and her friends and family that chronicles her life of despair in the midst of courting two men at the same time. One is Major Sanford who is captivating but insincere-the other is Reverend Boyer who is characterless and attracted to Eliza’s vibrant personality. She carries this out as long as possible while not being able to choose one or the other as a suitor. She is more attracted to Sanford but Boyer would make a better husband. In an instant she is abandoned by both men who marry other women and that is when the tragedy begins for her. By entering into an adulterous relationship with Sanford, she becomes pregnant then dies at childbirth. This is a surface level account of the book.
