About The Book-Maria Edgeworth was born at Black Bourton, Oxfordshire, England, Jan. 1, 1767, and eleven years later her father removed to Ireland and settled on his own estate at Edgeworthstown. "Belinda," published in 1801, is Maria Edgeworth's one early example of a novel not placed in Irish surroundings, but dealing with fashionable life. Issued just a year after the appearance of her first Irish tale, "Castle Rackrent," it betrays entirely the influence of the novelist's autocratic and eccentric father, Richard Lovell Edgeworth, with whom the daughter had been previously collaborating. No one could be less suited than he to advise about fiction, yet to his daughter his advice was almost the equivalent of a command. The story is interesting as an example of literary workmanship outside of the scenes in which special success had been achieved. Miss Edgeworth died at Edgeworthstown on May 22, 1849.

On the surface this book is the story of Belinda and her search for a husband- but it touches on many themes that are worth thinking about even today. The characters are interesting and multi-faceted. They are not all "good" or "bad". Edgeworth shows insight into many different aspects of human nature and conveys them skillfully and without overdoing it. Although her "messages" are clear, her skill is subtle. The book ended somewhat unconventionally- but given the many unconventional topics that were covered in this book- I felt it was appropriate. You don't really know how the story ends- instead you are given your choice of a "happily ever after" or a "heart warming scene" and a challenge to have the "wit" to find the moral of the story.
