"Picture the scene: you're a single young woman living in Regency Ireland and, unless you already possess a comfortable fortune, a husband is your best bet to ensure financial security.
An illustrated account of Irish women's social history covering fashion and beauty, gossip and scandal and the most up to date information on those delicate gynecological matters."
