Quote of the Day:

“Oh, yes, she’s unusual!” he said bitterly. “She blurts out whatever may come into her head; she tumbles from one outrageous escapade into another; she’s happier grooming horses and hobnobbing with stable-hands than going to parties; she’s impertinent; you daren’t catch her eye for fear she should start to giggle; she hasn’t any accomplishments; I never saw anyone with less dignity; she’s abominable, and damnably hot at hand, frank to a fault, and—a darling!”

~ Sylvester by Georgette Heyer

    Thanks for sharing the video! Would you mind terribly telling me the title and author of the book on Victorian households? I can’t make out either in the video and I’m very much interested in the book. Thank you!
