True Love is the only novel by American author Sarah E. Farro, and it deserves to stand among the very best American novels of the Victorian era. Published in 1891 it was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, and it was also acclaimed as the first American novel by a black American author. Perhaps surprisingly, Farro took inspiration from the books she read rather than the life she lived, so her book is set in England and its protagonists are white. Nevertheless, this is a powerful tale of love set against the threat of sickness and death, and its ending can still move readers more than a century after it was first published.

True Love is a unique addition to the nineteenth century literature canon, and a must-read for lovers of Victorian fiction. We are proud to re-publish Farro's novel in this high quality new edition, bringing it before a new audience. Also included in this volume is a new introduction by author and Victorian literature enthusiast Rebecca Batley.
