Camilla; Or, a Picture of Youth, Volume I (Dodo Press) by Frances Burney
Book DescriptionFrances Burney (1752-1840), also known as Fanny Burney and after marriage as Madame D'Arblay, was a novelist, diarist, and playwright. She was self-educated, and began writing what she called her "scribblings" at the age of ten. She destroyed the manuscript of her first novel, but her journals survived. In 1793 she married a French exile, General Alexandre D'Arblay. Their only son, Alexander, was born in 1794. After a lengthy writing career, and travels that took her to France for over ten years, she settled in Bath, England. Throughout her career as a writer, her wit and talent for satirical caricatures were widely acknowledged. In total, she wrote four novels, eight plays, one biography, and twenty volumes of journals and letters. Her works include: The History of Caroline Evelyn (1767), Evelina; or, The History of a Young Lady's Entrance into the World (1778), Cecilia; or, Memoirs of an Heiress (1782), Camilla: or, A Picture of Youth (1796) and The Wanderer; or, Female Difficulties (1814).

Evelina, Paperback (May 2012)
Beautiful young Evelina falls victim to the rakish advances of Sir Clement Willoughby on her entrance to the world of fashionable London. Colliding with the manners and customs of a society she doesn't understand, she finds herself without hope that she should ever deserve the attention of the man she loves.
