This is not a history book. This is not an etiquette book. This is a well-researched (and laugh-out-loud funny) time travel book. Forget everything you think you know about life in Victorian times. Living the Brontë, Jane Eyre, Gone with the Wind life was anything but glamorous. In fact it was downright disgusting at times. From crotchless panties and chamber pots, birth control and mansplaining menstruation, this is a quick, lighthearted, but informative romp through the mid-1800s to the dawn of the 20th century. It is sure to leave you appreciating the modern times we live in.
