Unexpectedly fascinating and satisfying. I keep learning new things about a period and society about which I've already read a lot. Things like a maid's wages - "thirty-five pounds a year (and beer, of course)". The heroine, it must be said, keeps up a decent front on a mere 20 pounds a year and whatever she earns by running errands for society ladies. And whilom is my word for today ;) http://www.online-literature.com/burnett/fox-seton
