reviewed To See a Fine Lady on
This is the story of Araminta Glover, an eighteenth-century English dairy maid who falls in love with day laborer Jan. Although she loves Jan deeply, she can not picture herself living a happy life with him. She believes that falling in love with Jan will lead to the type of life her mother has led. Araminta moves on to work at another dairy farm and attracts the attention of a member of the local gentry. She also attracts the attention of Mrs. Stancy - a devilishly psychotic employer. Steeped in period detail and class conflicts, this is a rags-to-riches story set in eighteenth-century England. I loved this story and give it an A+!
