Review

'Wives and Daughters covers a wide range of domestic subjects, quoting the women's correspondance and journals...Martin discusses in depth country life, servants, households...provid[ing] a gloss on life at Pemberley, Mansfield Park and Kellynch' JASNA News, vol 22 No. 2, Summer 2006 --Sanford Lakoff

From the Author

Wives and Daughters describes life in four large country houses in the Georgian period. Until the twentieth century, when so many large estates were broken up, a county seat was the adminstrative centre of a family business, which would usually be based on renting out tenanted land, combined with operatons such as farm management, property development and the exploitation of natural resources such as coal and iron. It was these activities that provided landowners with much of the money that they needed to construct and furnish their mansions, and gave them the power base that enabled them to pursue their social and political ambitions.
