It really was an ah-ha moment. I turned the page and then jumped out of my chair to grab Mrs. Beeton.

It makes the reading so much more personal for you. I have loved to seeing so many connections throughout the week of the blog tour. Thanks so sharing your thoughts and time with the rest of us.

Somehow, I had assumed that Mrs. Beeton was a matron – with many years of household management under her belt.

I found her book kind of astounding in its breadth of know-how and also as a revealing portrait of an era not so long ago and yet a world away.

Thank you for sharing your own connection to the book.

Saying good-bye to a book is always difficult.

Most people tend to throw old books away or donate them to the local thrift store.
