“Hope Leslie” is a 1827 novel by American novelist Catharine Sedgwick. Unusually progressive for the time it was published, Sedgwick’s novel contains strong feminist overtones and notions of justice towards Native Americans. In this, her third novel, Sedgwick recounts a dramatic conflict between colonists, Native Americans and the British Empire. A fascinating novel that earned its author a large readership and healthy reputation and is still an interesting read today. Other notable works by this author include: “A New England Tale” (1822), “The Linwoods” (1835), and “Home” (1835). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

The one star has nothing to do with the quality of the story overall. It's a good story with an independent thinking female protagonist, as well as a heroic Native American princess. The problem is, the ebook version only contains the second half of the book. It's divided into two volumes, so even though it starts at chapter I, it's chapter I of volume II. I needed this for an American Lit class and was very confused when discussion began over events that hadn't occurred in my electronic version. I had to order a paper copy and read like crazy to catch up with what was going on.

This is apparently only volume two on the download version.
