Setting + time
I think they live in the 18th/19th century because it is written in that time.
It takes place in Ireland because there was a man from belfast.
The title is Eveline because the story goes about the live of eveline.
I did not like this story because there was no adventure in it. Also I did not understand it very well because it was written on a strange manner. I had to read it three times.
Buth I think Eveline did a good choice because she didn't want to break her promise from her mother. She followed her heart, and that was the best.
