Book summary: Leonora


Leonora is an epistolary novel originally published in 1806. The plot of the novel centers on the newly-married Leonora and her decision to bring back to England a woman who had been exiled to France. The woman, Olivia, is known as a "coquette," and her controversial behavior with regard to her marriage had driven her to France, where she cultivated an aristocratic, "French" sensibility that exists apart from conventional (English)morality.
