"Eveline" takes place within the heroine's mind, so there is little action.  The narration is therefore stream-of-consciousness.  The reader sees Eveline's thoughts as they wander to different places and times.  The story is not presented in a linear fashion.  Instead, the reader gains information about the story and the heroine through her thoughts and memory.
