A Brief Explanation

I am currently reading A Lady of High Regard by Tracie Peterson. The novel is set in 1852. It begins in June. I'm only about halfway through so I don't know how many months it covers. But one of the *themes* of the book--if theme is the proper word which I'm almost sure it isn't--is that the main character is a reporter/writer for Godey's Ladies Book.

So I thought it would be fun to bring you various excerpts from Godey's during that timeframe to show you a little insight into the main character. And then when I'm done with the book, I'll be reviewing that as well.
