The Wanderer or Female Difficulties follows a woman fleeing France to escape a painful past, only to be met with new obstacles along the way. It’s an honest depiction of eighteenth-century life without the presence of political or familial support. A wandering woman emigrates to England to escape the violent uprising of 1790s France. With no friends or family, she must find work and connect with others for assistance. Her lack of finances and social status leave her vulnerable to the whims of wealthy employers. Despite her situation, the woman becomes involved with a man who’s unaware of her troubled past. She struggles to maintain her privacy as the truth becomes harder to hide. The Wanderer or Female Difficulties highlights the flaws of English society built on politics and patriarchy. One woman’s survival depends on the kindness or cruelty of others. It’s a glaring injustice, that forces her to make light of dire circumstances. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Wanderer or Female Difficulties is both modern and readable. show more
