180 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w drawings, maps. "Sarah Thomas wrote these diaries from her home in the quiet market town of Fairford in Gloucestershire at the height of Queen Victoria's reign. This was a time when people still travelled by coach and pair, or pony and trap or shared the carrier's cart with bundles and crates or maybe even a coffin - for the railway had not yet reached this pocket of the Cotswolds. Sarah (was the) daughter of a Baptist Chapel Minister, single and single-minded, head of the household following the death of both parents, caring for her invalid younger sister and her step-brother. There is no doubt that within this Victorian lady, who coped with running a home and over-seeing the affairs of the local chapel, there beat a passionate heart and a rebellious spirit. The diaries cover a crucial part of Sarah's life as she has to decide on marriage and which of her suitors to accept. The themes of conflict in love and the demands of her strict religious upbringing and the frailties of human emotions, make the diary as rich to read as any novel. Sarah's diary was not meant for anyone else's eyes. The entries are too frank, too intimate and too revealing, to have been designed for any other purpose than a secret repository for her heartfelt feelings. And herein is its charm and value, as one imagines Sarah writing in her tiny notebooks by the light of a candle in the privacy of her room, recounting the daily events and reflecting on her innermost thoughts. Now, some one hundred and thirty years later, we can share them with her." Slight waviness to bottom edge of text block. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling.
