  • "A story of initiation into the ways of the world for a young, provincial girl, Evelina is both richly comic and gravely moral. It is at once a guide to fashionable London, a satirical attack on the new consumerism, an investigation of women's position in the late eighteeenth century, and a love story. The new introduction and full notes to this edition make this richness all the more readily available to a modern reader. - ;'Lord Orville did me the honour to hand me to the coach, talking all the way of the honour I had done him! O these fashionable people!'Frances Burney's first and most endur."@en
  • "Traces the adventures of country-born Evelina as she tries to make it in London, pursued by cads, used by boorish relatives, and finally, redeemed by the noble Lord Orville."@en
  • "Raised by a pastor after her mother died and her father abandoned her, Evelina leaves the seclusion of the country for her first season out, encounters all manner of people--from prospective husbands to rakes to vulgar relatives--and endures all manner of trials before she achieves her final triumph. --From publisher's description."@en
  • "Richly comic yet gravely moral, this is the story of a young provincial girl's initiation into the ways of the world in 18th-century England. It is at once an attack on the new consumerism, an investigation of women's position in society, and a love story."
  • "Leaving the secluded home of her guardian for the first time, beautiful Evelina Anville is captivated by her new surroundings in London's beau monde?and in particular by the handsome, chivalrous Lord Orville. But her enjoyment soon turns to mortification at the hands of her vulgar and capricious grandmother, and the rakish Sir Clement Willoughby, who torments the naive young woman with his unwanted advances. And while her aristocratic father refuses to acknowledge her legitimacy, Evelina can hold no hope of happiness with the man she loves."
  • "Raised in seclusion until her seventeenth birthday, Evelina is exposed to London society for the first time while in the company of the fashionable Lady Howard. Evelina's lack of aristocratic upbringing quickly becomes apparent, but undaunted by her lack of awareness of the customs and conventions of eighteenth-century London, Evelina strives to win the love of established nobleman Lord Orville."@en

Published anonymously, Frances Burney's Evelina is a satirical novel that conveys one young woman's coming-of-age in highly aggressive, and fashionable eighteenth-century society. Evelina's innocent commentary perfectly depicts the isolating effect of these customs, while also criticizing them, and provides shrewd commentary on the spectacle and formalities of English society.

  • "Even in the highly stratified social hierarchy of eighteenth-century England, it was possible for an outcast to rise through the ranks and find true love amongst the affluent upper classes. That's exactly what Evelina, the plucky illegitimate daughter of a prominent aristocrat, is able to accomplish. This funny feel-good novel is sure to please fans of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters."@en
  • "Evelina is the daughter of an English aristocrat, but is brought up in the country until her seventeenth birthday, because she is of dubious birth and unacknowledged. Once out in London and Bristol-Hotwells, Evelina learns through a series of humorous events how to navigate society, and a nobleman falls in love with her. This sentimental novel with its satirical remarks on society significantly influenced later, similar works, such as those by Jane Austen"@en
  • "A groundbreaking romantic satire, the story tells of an eighteenth century innocent young lady's first appearance in London society and the picaresque dangers that ensue.--Adapted from jacket flap."@en
