Short but interesting read for anyone wanting an introduction to Victorian daily life. Much of the focus is on the servants, either how employers dealt with them or what they did. That in itself says a lot about daily life for wealthy and middle class women of the time. Horn keeps the big picture in focus while providing tidbits of detail drawn from diaries, letters, and period books on household management.
