Part journal, part commonplace book, among many gems you will find enlightenment and advice on everything from dreams to garlic; patriotism to wrinkles. Written throughout her life but only discovered after her death, by her great-great nephew, Christopher Rush, Elspeth's (known as Aunt Epp) journal was never intended for publication but her style of writing and the subject matter she covers nonetheless reaches a universal audience. Not afraid to put forth views on the big topics - religion, evolution, and ethical issues - she also tackles the nuts and bolts of living - food, sex and health. Vital, refreshingly frank and always amusing, A Victorian Lady's Guide to Life provides a wealth of sound advice.
