Summary
Moll, which she emphasizes is not her birth name, though she never does reveal what it was, is raised until she is teenager in America by a foster mother. She then gets a job as a household servant where she is loved by both of the families' sons. The oldest convinces her to "act as if they where married" in bed, but then is unwilling to marry her, and pawns her off on his younger brother. She is then widowed, and leaves her children behind to begin a new life. She pretends to be a fortuned widow to attract a man that will marry her and provide her with security

Summary
Moll is born in Newgate prison to a petty thief and is soon left at the mercy of whoever will take her in. From this unfavorable beginning, the lusty, resourceful Moll loves and bargains her way from rags to riches, from prostitution in the streets of London to prosperity on a Virginia plantation. Along the way, she offers a charmingly candid view of her life and times
