Review Time, Round 2!
Mrs. Robinson's Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady by Kate Summerscale
'The story of a true-life Madame Bovary and the scandalous trial that rocked Victorian England by the bestselling author Kate Summerscale.' Well, that got my attention.
So.....all I can say is I'm glad 1: my husband doesn't read my PRIVATE journal, and 2: even if he did, and didn't like what he read, he COULDN'T DIVORCE ME. Yes, I am enthralled and enamored of the Victorian era, but there are many, many things that make me glad I didn't live there. That aside, Kate Summerscale's writing and research is stellar.
