SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Restoration London

Restoration London - Liza Picard

This rating (4 1/2 stars) is for Picard's Restoration London: From Poverty to Pets, From Medicine to Magic, From Slang to Sex, From Wallpaper to Women's Rights, which I can't seem to find in the database.  All of her London books are well worth a read (and tend to have interesting illustrations), and cover the social history of the city from Elizabethan through Victorian times (so roughly 1560-1870).

 

I'd love for her to do a "Chaucer's London," but am not sanguine (Picard is 87, I believe).
