From the blurb: "Who was the real Mrs. Beeton-and, for that matter, Mr. Beeton? ...Mrs. Isabella Beeton was a handsome and talented young woman in her twenties, who perceived a national need and wrought an amazing transformation in the English domestic scene-though this she did not live to see. Isabella Mayson was born in 1836, at 24 Milk Street, Cheapside, and spent her first seven years amid the bustle of the City. Then came a great change; from 1843 to 1856 she lived at Epsom, where her stepfather was Clerk of the Course. At twenty, she married Samuel Beeton, an enterprising young publisher, already making his way in the world. The Beetons were no humdrum Darby and Joan, as this story tells. Their energy and activity-and especially Isabella's stupendous achievements during the brief eight years of her married life-reflect notably not only on them but also on the prosperous Victorian age of which they were an integral part."
