Format: Kindle Edition
This book kept me entertained all the way through. The personal ads were all very different styles, some writers almost poetic while others may well have been enquiring if anyone had a robust bull they wished to part with. I liked that the book was set out in time line order, the differences in the writing so evident between the first and last pages. This collection would be amusing for anyone with an interest in historical romances, and we had a lot of laughs in the nursing home where I work with the residents speculating about the stories begind the short snippets of information.

**The author of this book provided a copy of this ebook to me for an honest and unbiased review**

Amusing little tid bits of a time gone by. A little pricey as the book is not many pages. But other than that it was a good quick read.
