The Short Life and Long Times of Mrs. Beeton

The First Domestic Goddess

Overview

From the publisher

In Victorian England, there was only one fail-safe authority on matters ranging from fashion to puddings to scullery maids: Mrs. Beeton’s Book of Household Management. In this delightful, superbly researched biography, award-winning historian Kathryn Hughes pulls back the lace curtains to reveal the woman behind the book — Mrs. Beeton, the first domestic diva of the modern age — and explores the life of the book itself.
