    While Mark Girouard is the best and best known authority on the phenomenon and institution of the English country house, Horn is undoubtedly the leading expert on the people who lived there She s also one of the very best authors when it comes to domestic history of the Victorian era, from the scullery maids in the basement kitchen to the children in the attic nursery This book considers the place of the well born though not necessarily titled lady and her place in proper society, how she wa While Mark Girouard is the best and best known authority on the phenomenon and institution of the English country house, Horn is undoubtedly the leading expert on the people who lived there She s also one of the very best authors when it comes to domestic history of the Victorian era, from the scullery maids in the basement kitchen to the children in the attic nursery This book considers the place of the well born though not necessarily titled lady and her place in proper society, how she was prepared for it, how she dealt with it, and what she secretly thought about it They were a combination, by and large, of demanding authority figure and condescending chatelaine The middle and upper classes of 19th century Britain made rather a cult of domesticity, rebelling against the Regency period and modeling themselves after their vision of Queen Victoria, and they were big on manuals and lectures to make sure everyone understood what was expected Horn takes a topical approach, with chapters on girls growing up, coming out in society and finding a mate, settling in as a wife and becoming a mother, playing the role of Lady Bountiful, engaging in leisure and entertaining, and as a result of the Great War and the general shake up from top to bottom that it produced in society entering the professions and even politics She focuses at times on a small number of well known ladies who kept diaries or left memoirs, but her coverage is really pretty broad Moreover, everything is footnoted, so this is an excellent place to begin in both Women s Studies or general social history of the period
