As well as reviewing Maids, Wives, Widows: Exploring Early Modern Women’s Lives, 1540-1740, Dr Jem Bloomfield also interviewed me about the project that led to the book. You can read the interview here. It begins:
Earlier in the year I reviewed Dr. Sara Read’s new book Maids, Wives, Widows: Exploring Early Modern Women’s Lives 1540-1740, and was engrossed by its scholarly and fascinating account of the realities of life in the period. Recently I asked her to share a bit more about the book, the process of writing it, and what she hoped readers would find in it.
My thanks to Jem for this opportunity! Remember to check out Jem’s own book, Words of Power which you can read more about on his blog via the link below:
