    1. I bought this book some time ago and when I picked it up again recently, I cringed The text was first published in 1922 and so much research has been conducted since then that this book had to be hopelessly out of date However, when I delved into it, I soon realized why I bought it in the first place The text is chock full of primary source quotes from letters and journals These materials only get better with age There is so much original material that the reader can form her own or his own conc [...]


    2. I stopped reading this book at page 134 when I thought I was going to die of boredom This was written in 1922, which I didn t realize when I got the book, so the non fiction writing style is antiquated and not very well written or entertaining The author includes way too many quotes from direct sources like journals and letters Some quotes are informative and interesting, but too many and you feel like you re reading a badly written research paper He makes many questionable assumptions and prese [...]


    3. I started and finished several books while reading this one but not because this is hard to read or dull rather it is mine and the others read were borrowed from friends or the library I wanted to read this mostly for information about how women lived during colonial days and I was not disappointed I learned quite a lot However, I also learned something of how women were thought of during the early 1900 s as well due to the book being a reprint of the original published in 1922.Basically, a good [...]


    4. I came back to this one, as I d really like to read through some of my lingering non fiction books For some reason this one is just not an entertaining read, I m not sure if it s disjointed, or just not presented in a way that flows same thing LOL , but in any case, it does have many interesting facts Just wish it had been presented in a readable format.

    6. Plenty of useful information but very hard to wade through due to writing style and probably year of original publication At times the author gives them impression of appreciating about colonial women than the women of his own time Personally I think it would be enjoyable to read primary sources from the women themselves than a collection of quotes analyzed many years later.


    7. An in depth study of womens lives in colonial times peppered with diary excerpts The author has detailed regional differences and explained changes during the early, middle, and late periods of that era Interesting and informative.


    8. Written in 1922 This book was a very slow read for me The author pulls information from documents of the time period and reports it in that manner However, if you can drudge through the information, it s an interesting insight of women in colonial times.


    9. An okay book, but it gets pretty patronizing often, not surprising though since it was written in 1922.
