Evelina by Fanny Burney

Evelina is a delightful story that captivates the reader from the very first page. The protagonist, Evelina Anville, is a young and innocent girl who is thrown into the midst of high society in London. As she navigates this new world, filled with gossip, intrigue, and societal expectations, Evelina must learn to navigate the complexities of love and friendship.

Fanny Burney does an excellent job of creating a vivid and realistic world for Evelina to inhabit. The characters are well-developed and the dialogue is both witty and humorous. The story is engaging and the pacing is perfect, keeping the reader hooked until the very end.

Overall, Evelina is a charming and engaging novel that offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of 18th century England. It is a story of love, friendship, and self-discovery that will resonate with readers of all ages. I highly recommend Evelina to anyone looking for a well-written and entertaining historical fiction novel.

Book Description:

In this epistolary novel, we find a young woman named Evelina, who was raised in rural seclusion until her eighteenth year because of her uncertain parentage. Through a series of harrowing and humorous events that take place in London and an English resort town, Evelina learns how to navigate the complex layers of 18th century society and earn the love of a distinguished and honorable nobleman. This comedy of manners often satirizes the society in which it is set; Evelina is a significant precursor to later works by Jane Austen and Maria Edgeworth, whose novels explore many of the same issues.

The reading by Elizabeth Klett is absolutely terrific. She has made me a fan. I will be trying Wives and Daughters next.
