Riassunto: To Read My Heart: The Journal of Rachel Van Dyke, 1810-1811, a compelling primary document previously unpublished, offers insights into the life and mind of a seventeen-year-old young woman, while also providing a fascinating window into the cultural and social landscape of the early national period. Rachel Van Dyke was a thoughtful, intelligent observer, and her journal is an important account of upper- and middle-class life in the growing city of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Her entries reveal her remarkably considered views on social customs, marriage, gender roles, friendship, and religion.

The journal is dominated by two interrelated themes: Rachel's desire to broaden her knowledge and her friendship with her teacher, Ebenezer Grosvenor. Since Ebenezer was both her teacher and her romantic interest, it is impossible to distinguish between the themes of education and romance that dominate her writings. On several occasions, Rachel and Ebenezer exchanged their private journals with each other. During these exchanges, Ebenezer added comments in the margins of Rachel's journal, producing areas of written "conversation" between them. The marginalia add to the complexity of the journal and provide evidence of and insight into Rachel's romantic and intellectual relationship with him. The written interactions between Rachel and Ebenezer, together with discussions of friendship and courtship rituals provided throughout the journal, enrich our understanding of social life during the early national period.

To Read My Heart will be of interest to students of American history, women's studies, and nineteenth-century literature; all readers will be captivated by the rich expression andemotional experience of the journal. Whether she is relating the story of a young friend's wedding, the death of a small boy, or the capture of a slave in Guinea, Rachel's pages have universal appeal as she seeks to understand her own role as an emerging adult.

L'autore: A native of Chicago, Debby Schriver earned undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Her major studies were in educational counseling psychology and early American literature.

As an author Schriver has a broad base of success. In 2000 The University of Pennsylvania published her book, To Read My Heart, the Journal of Rachel Van Dyke 1810-1811. The discovery and research of this journal gave Schriver first-hand investigative experience as a literary sleuth. Rachel Van Dyke left few clues about her life after the age of 18. Delving into early town city directories, marriage and death records, church files, cemeteries, and researching every person and event mentioned in the journal unearthed a wealth of information. Co-author Lucia McMahan provided additional historical context and insight. This book has received laudatory  reviews from scholars and general readers alike.

Schriver is actively involved in civic organizations, particularly those which direct their services to children. She is a Girl Scout volunteer, serving in numerous positions - troop leader, mentor for senior girls completing their Gold Awards, international travel leader for middle school and high school level girls, and president of the Girl Scout Board of Directors.  Schriver is an American Red Cross Volunteer, delivering first-aid classes, disaster shelter preparedness, and youth education classes in local schools. As a Rotary Club member she volunteers her time and reads to first, second, and third-graders at an inner-city school.

Additional publications include In the Footsteps of Champions: The University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers, the First Three Decades, Ice 'n' Go:  Score in Sports and Life. She is currently at work on Whispering in the Daylight: The Children of Tony Alamo's Christian Ministry and Their Journey to Freedom. She resides in Knoxville, Tennessee.
