Summary (From the publisher):

It was a sequel to Caroline Evelyn, the novel burned by its author when she was fifteen; Evelina, the apparently illegitimate daughter of vanished Caroline, happily enters a society much more dangerous than she realizes. The novel records in letters its young heroine's encounters with society, both high and low, in London and at fashionable watering places.
