    We know what life was like for Victoria and Albert. But what was it like for a commoner like you or me? How did it feel to cook with coal and wash with tea leaves? Drink beer for breakfast and clean your teeth with cuttlefish? Dress in whalebone and feed opium to the baby? Surviving everyday life came down to the gritty details, the small necessities and tricks of living. Drawing on Ruth's unique firsthand experience gained from living on a Victorian farm for a year, this book will teach you everything you need to know about 19th-century living.

    When her father remarries, the honest, innocent Molly Gibson suddenly finds herself with a new stepsister, Cynthia, who is beautiful, worldly and impetuous. This would be more than enough to deal with, but the new wife is the deeply snobbish (and darkly secretive) Hyacinth. Thwarted love, scheming ambition and small-town gossip underlie the warmth, irony and brilliant social observation which link the relationships and the inevitable conflicts as profound change comes to rural England.

Often her books touched her readers and they felt moved to write, or they wanted to share their own memories.

    When hotel owner and police liaison officer Honey Driver accompanies a friend on a ghost walk, the ghosts fail to appear, but one of the walkers is later found hanging from the rafters of an old shop. The supernatural has nothing to do with the murder, but it is connected to the past: the sinking of the Titanic and the international demand for old artefacts. Honey has two other big problems; she's being stalked by a man in wellies on a motorbike and her mother is threatening to move closer to her hotel.

    Wilmet Forsyth is well dressed, well looked after, suitably husbanded, good looking, and fairly young - but very bored. Her husband Rodney, a handsome army major, is slightly balder and fatter than he once was. Wilmet would like to think she has changed rather less. Her interest wanders to the nearby Anglo-Catholic church, where at last she can neglect her comfortable household in the more serious-minded company of three unmarried priests and Piers Longridge, a man of a different character altogether.

    A film crew has arrived in Bath to make a new film about the city's 18th century heroine, Jane Austen. To the satisfaction of hotel owner and police liaison officer Honey Driver, some of the visitors are staying at the Green River Hotel, bringing some welcome low-season business. Plus there's the thrilling possibility that Honey and her daughter Lindsay might be cast as extras. But then the film's star, the impossibly demanding Martyna Manderley, is found dead, and Honey finds she's landed her own starring role - as prime suspect.
