Book Description

22 Oct 2009

What Every Woman Ought to Know is a fascinating and poignant compilation of love and lifestyle tips, passed down to the contemporary lady from the good women of 100 years ago.

Author, Gavin Mortimer, has exhaustively scoured the publications of yesteryear, the pre-cursor to ‘problem pages’, to find unique, useful hints and tips. Some are practical, some intriguing and others exotic, such as the honourable intentions, or otherwise, of a gentleman that has telephoned repeatedly but not yet proposed; the merits of preparing chamomile tea as a beauty treatment; and ways to make automobile riding less painful.

Included are recipes for pimples on the skin, and colds and sore throats, remedies for deafness in old people, split ends and wrinkles, and advice on the never-ending problems of courting and romance.

Packed full of sound and thoughtful advice, and with chapters on love, etiquette, beauty, home-making, health, exercise…and more, What Every Woman Ought to Know is the perfect way to introduce some decorum into the life of every modern girl.

Gavin Mortimer is an author and journalist whose work has been published in the UK, Europe and America. He has written several children’s books, The Great Swim (about the race to become the first female to swim the English Channel), and Chasing Icarus (about the early days of aviation.)
