Sort order. Jan 06, Jessica rated it liked it. A very entertaining book, and always interesting to see how different women were portrayed in history. I liked reading about the old-fashioned mother-in-law who didn't own a napkin. There were also two small sentences that would be considered racist now, but showed a light on how people used to think. It's was a pretty good book but apparently they fainted a lot and got deathly ill from sadness back then.

She said what she had to say in the fewest possible words, wast log no time in repetition, and on this occasion she was briefer than usual, for the good woman had many things upon her mind this morning. First, there was Betty to rouse and get into a state of locomotion, - a good half hour's work, as Aunt Barbara knew from a three years' experience. There was the sponge put to rise the previous night, she must see if that had risen, and with her own hands mould the snowy breakfast rolls which Ethelyn liked so much.
There were the chambers to be inspected a second time, and dinner to be prepared for the Van Buren set expected from Boston and last, though far from least, there was Ethelyn herself to be wakened when the clock should strike the hour of six, and this was a pleasure which good Aunt Barbara would not for the world have foregone.
Every morning for the last sixteen years, when Ethelyn was at home, she had gone to the chamber where her darling slept, and bending over her had kissed her cheek, and called her back from the dreamless slumber which otherwise might nave been prolonged to an indefinite time, - for Ethelyn did not believe in the maxim, Early to bed and early to rise, and always begged for a little more indulgence, even after the brown eyes unclosed and ashed forth a responsive greeting to the motherly face bending above them.
