A great introduction to the culture and customs of late 18th and early 19th century England. This book uses a wide array of contemporary sources including Jane Austen's personal letters to portray the everyday lives of the lower and middle classes. It covers many topics including marriage, birth, religion, and hygiene. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in this era in English history
