Confessions of Cherubino

Bertha Harris
In her second novel, Confessions of Cherubino, Harris tracks an elusive love through the lives of her characters while satirizing the American South with a warm humor. Cherubino is the embodiment of romantic love and is found throughout the book but is especially focused in the characters of Ellen and Margaret. These two young women find themselves enwrapped in the innocent aura of infatuation and eventually, through their struggles, experience what is perhaps love's perfection. Harris is able to examine love as a romantic myth while simultaneously showing it as a very real force effecting significant changes.
