Cecilia, Memoirs of an Heiress, vol 2

by Fanny Burney (Madame d'Arblay)

What a surprise!!!

I really was amazed at the end of this book, because I consider the author ideas so modern, even nowadays, but as to my surprise, this wasn't the very end, it was in fact, just the end of the first volume!! Funny? Hahhaha... Yeah!!

This is Fanny Burney, and she has a way to catch the reader's atention that it's so difficult to stop reading it!! Now I'm at the end of the third volume and I may confess that is so worth reading, I'm looking forward to see what's going to happen!!

I have read that Fanny Burney had inspired Jane Austen and it's easy to see, by reading her work, this is true! They are really so much alike! As for Jane's fans all those 3 volumes are very delightful and important piece of literature indeed!!
