This review is from: Family Secrets: Living with Shame from the Victorians to the Present Day (Themes In British Social History) (Kindle Edition)
This book is a fantastic illustration of how social attitudes to issues such as illegitimacy, adoption, divorce, disability and homosexuality have changed since the Victorian era. It's meticulously researched stories made me rethink some of my assumptions about how people in the past thought about those who were 'different' in some way. Highly recommended.
