Product Description

About the Author

Evangeline Holland was raised on both coasts and straight down the middle of America, where the cobblestone streets of Old Town Alexandria, the wild prairies and outlaws of Kansas, and the rolling hills of San Francisco inspired her love of history. Luckily, Evangeline was able to grow up and indulge in this passion with the best job in the world: writing historical fiction. She lives in Northern California with incredibly possessive and territorial cat, a perpetually disastrous kitchen, and a house full of books.

Was this book ever edited? I think not! There are loads of spelling mistakes (and I don't just mean American spelling), incorrect grammar and no page numbers on my copy. Frankly, I've never seen a book like this. Added to this, the entire content of the book is unbalanced. What could have been a valuable asset to someone interested in the period turned out to be a big let-down.

Although a fair amount of research seems to have been devoted to this book, it is spoiled by a shallow narrative in parts. Atrocious grammar and repetition - editing? - do not help. For British readers especially repeated mistakes like "Holburn" and others also detract from the overall impression.

HASH(0x905b0bd8) out of 5 stars Excellent resource for writers and researchers 19 April 2014
By Andromeda Eve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has lots of great details which I never would have had the time or knowledge to compile. As an author, I needed specific information about London, society, names of stores and goods, manners, fashion etc. and this book delivers that information quite well. I only wish it was more detailed about the London neighborhoods and shopkeepers, but overall it is a valuable resource for anyone who seeks accuracy in their Edwardian, England world building.

One word of caution - this book reads more like a long essay than a chapter book. The font is odd, and the chapters have abrupt, to-the-point sentences. There are no flowery opening sentences, and both headings and sub-headings are buried in with the rest of the text. This edition would benefit from some cleaning up to make it more user-friendly. The information is there, it just takes more effort than it should to locate and ingest.

HASH(0x905b0e24) out of 5 stars Like the Book but Maybe not on Kindle 18 Jan. 2014
By McKaren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed Evangeline Holland's Edwardian Promenade since I learned about it on Up Yours podcast. Haven't finished the book yet but so far so good. The only thing I don't like is the formatting of some of the tables & illustrations doesn't work well with the Kindle. Consider the hardcopy vs Kindle.

HASH(0x905b10dc) out of 5 stars Fairly good read 22 Dec. 2014
By G. Gauldin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is informative on Edwardian England. My main complaints include a problem with most Kindle books and diagrams and maps, they are too small to be very useful. The other complaint or downside is that chapters begin and end very abruptly, almost mid-sentence. However,much useful information is given.
