Simple life? I think not! - This book is written in such a way that you are drawn into the past and standing alongside the mistress of the house...planning your day and making sure the household help do their jobs well. It certainly reminds us of the benfits we have currently - with washing machines, dishwashers, automobiles, pre-packaged food and yes,fast food, yet still dont have enough time to do all the things we need/want to do. How would you like to dress your own cow or help make every article of clothing you wear (even though the hired help did most of it)? A brief introduction to the book instills in the reader a sense of where Mrs. Beeton arrived at her thoughts for proper household management. She seems to have been frustrated by societal changes she was witnessing and wanted her good ol days to return. It is a book I highly recommend not only for the history, but for the entertainment value. I could not put it down once I started.
