Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Mrs. Robinson's Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady - Kate Summerscale A nonfictional look at a notorious divorce case in 1850's Victorian England, where the main testimony came from the diary kept by the wife. Interesting look at hydrotherapy, spa life, privacy and morality. The author leaves the question of what Isabella Robinson did was right or wrong up to the leader. I found it to be a fairly good read, and a part of Victorian life that isn't explored very much. Four stars overall and recommended.
