Evelina, Paperback / softback Book

Evelina Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The first novel by the prolific 18th century writer, "Evelina" is a light-hearted epistolary novel chronicling a young lady's rise in Regency England society.

Evelina, having been raised in the country and sheltered from the evils of London, is suddenly thrust into the height of upper class society and introduced to her ridiculous and self-important grandmother.

What follows is an entertaining tale of love, friendship, and growing up, told with the wit and charm that inspired, and was admired by, Jane Austen.
