A wonderful insight into the past!
on 2 September 2013
I am delighted that I found this book - not only for reasons of research for my own novels (expect gleaned bits of information to be used extensively) but this is also a fascinating, intriguing and (in places) amusing read (there are also some details that make me so pleased I live now not then! I'm not sure that I'd like to call on the blacksmith next time I have toothache!)
Highly recommended for anyone interested in 18th century England or Jane Austen. A must have for writers of this period!
