Camilla : or, A Picture of Youth Fanny Burney


An early example of the novel of manners, Camilla follows the marriage fortunes of the Tyrold sisters--Camilla, Lavinia and Eugenia--and their cousin Indiana. At a time when manners have not only a social significance, but are thought to also indicate moral character, misunderstandings and the ill-informed judgments of others pose serious obstacles to the future happiness of these young women.
