3.0 out of 5 stars This book is
a light read for anyone interested in social history. I enjoyed it because I find the recording and change to social mores interesting but not at any depth. The level of this book suited me.

a light read for anyone interested in social history. I enjoyed it because I find the recording and change to social mores interesting but not at any depth. The level of this book suited me. Pick up and put down as you like; you won't lose the thread. A useful background for those writing about Victorian life among women whose class status left them somewhere between the drudgery of the working classes and the management responsibilities of running a large establishment. I read it on my Kindle; I don't think I would want it cluttering up my bookshelf.

This review is from: Life as a Victorian Lady (Kindle Edition)
A great read and very interesting. The writer has the tendency to fire off the facts really quickly without going deeper on the topic for a moment. But in overall, a good read!

One to read for insight into a past age. The servants come out quite well! The lady's world still exists, i'm sure.

This review is from: Life as a Victorian Lady (Kindle Edition)
Short but fascinating - an insight into the reality of life as a Victorian lady rather than the polarised extreme sometimes presented in fiction.

Pretty good value for the price. If you have read slot around the topic, this will not add much. However, the authors use of quotes from real people add a more human touch to the book

This review is from: Life as a Victorian Lady (Kindle Edition)
Was underwhelmed by this, good for young teenagers to draw them into history and how people lived in the past,
but it did not hold me
