Those incidents, therefore, from never being named, glided imperceptibly from her thoughts; and she grew up as unconscious as she was innocent, that, though born with a beauty which surpassed that of her lovely sisters, disease and accident had robbed her of that charm ere she knew she possessed it.

Lavinia tried vainly to excuse herself; he assured her it would raise her spirits, and bid her be under no apprehension, for he would stay and amuse the little Eugenia himself, and take care that she came to no harm.

This is a very interesting study of the way men were able to control women so completely. He falls in love with Indiana before speaking to her, saying, ” I liked the butney of Eugina, and thought mostly for her character I would like to see this as a movie.

I would say that some characters are more full developed than are others, but if you like classics and you like long romance novels, then this could be an excellent read for you. Unlike her previous novels, Evelina and CeciliaCamilla’s titular character is far from perfect in both beauty and intelligence.
