From Our Editors

'These letters document the timeless elements of domestic life--family relationships, childbirth, illness, household chores--but they offer far more than the familiar fare of the plantation mistress.'--Patricia Brady, The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography

Editorial Reviews

Not only can you visit Rosalie's home, you can visit it with Rosalie's words in your head. This is important because, while the structure is in fine shape, the interiors with one notable exception are sparsely furnished on the first floor and unfurnished upstairs. The walls largely have yet to be painted or papered appropriately, and the floors are bare.
