Writer Wednesday: How to be a Victorian
It's time for Writer Wednesday, when I discuss another author and his or her book. Today's feature is a step back in time with historian Ruth Goodman and her book How to be a Victorian. Every detail of Victorian life, from what various social classes ate at each meal to what medicines were used and what games were played are detailed. Anything you could want to learn about washing clothes or schooling or working hours can be found within these pages. In short, the lives of the people- men, women, and children all come alive. Differences in social classes and regions that were lived in are also shown. Full of interesting details, Victorian life surges through these pages.
My best to you all,
