not yet rated|write a review
Cecilia is an heiress, but she can only keep her fortune if her husband will consent to take her surname. Fanny Burney's unusual love story and deft social satire was much admired on its first publication in 1782 for its subtle interweaving of comedy, humanity, and social analysis.Controversial in its time, this eighteenth-century novel seems entirely fresh in relation to late twentieth-century concerns.
