Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Resources for the historical research used in The Mistress's Black Veil.

For those of you familiar with my work, you know that I usually include aresource page with my sources listed near the end of my books. Thistime, however, I omitted that page, as it is not required to have one.But, in lieu of several questions concerning the historical accuracy ofTMBV, I have decided to release my sources in this editorial. Theyinclude:

Harriette Wilson's Memoirs: The Greatest Courtesan of her Age, edited by Lesley Blanch, Courtesans by Katie Hickman, Beau Brummel by Ian Kelly, Voices from the World of Jane Austen by Malcolm Day, The Book of the Courtesans: A Catalogue of Their Virtues by Susan Griffin, The Courtesans: The Demi-Moude in 19th Century France by Joanna Richardson, City of Women by Christine Stansell, Temptress by Jane Billinghurst, The Lady Scandalous by Jo Manning.

There were several Wikipedia articles which were also used as well asinformation gleaned from other works of literature written in theRegency period such as Fanny Hill and the Victorian works ofCharles Dickens, written a few years later. The Regency period was avery boisterous era. The morals of the age were set by the RoyalFamily--George IV, better known as the Prince Regent, and his brother,William IV, who succeeded him on the throne, in particular. When theirniece, Victoria, took the throne, she and Albert brought about thechange of strict mores many are acquainted with and the Victorian Agebegan, along with many reforms which had their beginnings in the Regency Era and are addressed in TMBV.

The Mistress's Black Veil was very well researched, but as with all well researched works offiction, poetic license was used in places to suit the purpose of thisstory.
