By turns hilarious and grim, witty and lyrical, the storyfollows young Evelina as she leaves the seclusion of her country home andenters into late eighteenth-century London society-both its pleasures and itsdangers. Life in eighteenth-century England is vividly rendered as Evelina iseducated in the ways of the world and, eventually, love. As she battles suchcruelties as social snobbery and delights in such thrills as pleasure gardensand balls, Evelina strives toward her final triumph, while capturing the hearts oflisteners everywhere along the way.
