Non-Fiction | History
What is it about?
This book contains the gruesome details of what life was really like for ladies in the Victorian Era.
“Ladies, welcome to the 19th century, where there’s arsenic in your face cream, a pot of cold pee sits under your bed, and all of your underwear is crotchless. (Why? Shush, dear. A lady doesn’t question.)” (Goodreads)
Was it good?
Yes! This was a fascinating AND amusing journey back into an Era that has always interested me. Now I know for certain I would never give up my hot showers for a chance of catching typhoid, but I definitely loved reading about this time period.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has imagined themselves the heroine of any Victorian Era based story.
Send the kids to bed early and forget the mess; it’s time to read!
