really liked it
Recommended for: readers of historical fiction
Read from January 14 to 28, 2011

Hmmmmmm, LOTS of (English from England) words and phrases I was not familiar with.
Interesting info about the Arts and Ctafts Movement. Fabian Society, fairy tales,the suffrage movement and family dynamics. Lots of names I was not at all familiar with(of artists politicians, etc) .
Time period from the late 1800's to beginning of WWI.
In some way all of the impetus for and examples of, culural change remind me of the 1960's and 1970's(as I look back)
