Wilful Impropriety : 13 Tales of Society and Scandal Paperback / softback

Part of the Mammoth Books series

Description

The Victorian era is significant for the rise of the middle classes and marked changes in social relationships, both in the home and in wider society, with the proliferation of domestic help and the development of increasingly rigid gender roles.

These are romances that chafe against the restrictions of the period, with heroes and heroines who defy social convention, igniting firestorms of gossip.

The aristocrats, impostors, social climbers, domestic workers and undercover agents of these stories exist in an authentically lush world, depicted here with telling attention to detail.

While most of the stories are strongly realistic, some incorporate elements of fantasy.
