Booknews
Draws on primary documents and fictional accounts to illuminate a type of companionate relationship between women of the 18th century that was so prevalent it nearly became institutionalized. Considers how marital relations and the economic status of women underlay the need for women to form bonds with each other, the various relationships between partners, and the implicit and explicit statements both the women and their relationships made about marriage and society.
