cover onlyWelcome! We are sisters and co-authors of the upcoming book The Cowkeeper’s Wish, which traces our gnarled English roots from the 1840s to the 1930s. Part family memoir, part social history, the book is due to be published here in Canada in September 2018, and will be available outside Canada in March 2019. (English language ebooks will be available in the UK/US/Canada in the fall 2018.) Watch this blog for details, and join us for posts that give an inkling of the story to come – tales about music halls and workhouses, philanthropists and silent film stars, bootmakers and grave robbers, royalty and suffragettes, war ships and luxury ships, mental asylums and candy factories. We hope this space will be a treasure chest for those who share our curiosity for the Victorian, Edwardian, and Depression eras. Click the Follow option to join us for weekly trips back in time. We promise to take you to unexpected places.
