Evelina, or The history of a young lady's entrance into the world

Title: Evelina, or The history of a young lady's entrance into the world
Author: Francis Burney
Call Number: PR3316.A4 E8 1930
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Highly Recommended
Review: An epistolary novel, this book brings 18th century English society to life. The story follows a teenage girl, Evelina, who relates her entrance into society from the countryside to her adopted father through letters.  This book has a Jane Austen style as our heroine meets a dashing stranger at a ball and eventually falls in love him on her journey of self-discovery. With a mixture of English scandal and propriety, Evelina makes a good summer read.
