By I. J. travis on September 9, 2015
Format: Hardcover
My grandmother was born a the turn of the last century, and I was blessed to grow up in the company of a woman who made the transition from gaslights to fluorescent bulbs, from corsetry to the Wonder Bra...and I cannot tell whether I am more impressed my Sarah's meticulous and devoted research, her delicate wit, or her good-hearted sense. Having myself grown up on Amy Vanderbilt's work on manners and comportment, I think that Sarah has collected the best Victorian sensibilities and behaviors into one quite readable volume that 'ought' to be standard reading in middle school, as it serves both to tame the savage child, and provide history class with some depth and color it would otherwise be lacking.
