I had a hard time getting through this book. The material was interesting which made parts of the Deal me in Florence fist nursing Student 1860 shirt easy to get through, but it was bogged down by a lot of details. Too many details. I think all the extra details were supposed to help paint a picture for that time in society, but it became tedious. I felt like the chapter with the verdict could have been shorter. I kept thinking “Skip to the end…” (a line from “Spaced” where Tim hurries Daisy along with the details she wants to tell him that are sort of relevant to the real point).

An interesting story about what happens when one keeps a diary about wants and desires and unfortunately is read by one’s husband (and the Deal me in Florence fist nursing Student 1860 shirtis not part of those wants and desires). Much of this story is about the subsequent court proceedings when the husband pursues divorce. Divorce is new to the British system and there are many inconsistencies in the processes that are being worked out. The legal arguments are interesting, especially in Victorian England, at a time when women were just becoming recognized as having a few rights.
Kate Summerscale’s book tells the Deal me in Florence fist nursing Student 1860 shirt story of a scandalous Victoria divorce and in the telling sheds light on the circumscribed lives of women in that period. Along the way I learned a bit more about the Victorians, their interest in science and nature and the strange cures and beliefs of the period. Engrossing and hard to put down. I felt gratitude for my life and the freedom I enjoy after reading this, as well as a desire to learn more about some of the people of the period who were woven in to the story.
