Carriages! Architectural grandeur! Bodices and bustles!), what intrigues me most about
writing historcials is the very thing most often criticizedóthat the society was stuffy,
restricted, and in dire need of change.
For instance, in nineteenth-century England, married
women, by law, were not separate entities from their husbands Read More...

described as my " Read More...
