This book gives a lot of detail about the lives of Victorian women. Some of the information people will have read before in other books, but this one combines what you may have read in other books and adds new information as well. Within this book there are some primary source documents such as diary entries and also excerpts from journals during the time. Some of the topics that are written about are: a woman's life span, child, woman, motherhood and old age(and what is expected of them), knitting, daily tasks, furniture that would be appropriate for a parlor and how to behave, plus much more.
This book is a MUST HAVE for those interested in Victorian society. Writers and people doing research will find this book a valuable tool. Those who are interested in Victorian women and have no history background will find this book an easy read.
I strongly suggest you borrow this book from the library and then if you find it a great tool buy your own copy. This book is a gem.
