Read in February, 2012

** spoiler alert ** A wonderfully rich and textured book about the only real Victorians: the British of Queen Victoria's reign. Among them were my starving Irish ancestors and my grandmother who finally had it with the ould sod and emigrated to Omaha, of all places. Their past is still with us, from the still raging Darwin war to the international nature of the English language. Yes, some of them were perfectly dreadful, but the older I get the less easy do I find it to judge anyone worse than us.
