About the Author:

DELLA STANLEY is an author and historian who served as Co-ordinator of Canadian Studies at Mount St. Vincent University, Halifax.

Review:

"The diary entries are charged with the acknowledged yearnings of this young, middle-class woman for wider horizons, fulfilling occupations, and closer friendships.

Kate's diary is a rare glimpse into the world of a young woman coming of age in the late nineteenth century... the end result is indeed a Victorian album, suitable for even the most discriminating coffee table." (Margaret Conrad Canadian Historical Review)

"The flavour of Kate Shannon's eighteenth year, which is so evocative from the journal entries, is certainly enhanced by the presentation of the volume. Stanley has transformed the diary into a traditional Victorian Lady's album, copiously illustrated with photographs..., reproductions of picture postcards and callings cards, and other material, including sketches apparently drawn by Kate herself. Together with Stanley's brief introduction, these provide for the uninitiated reader a vivid sense of the sights, sounds, and smells of Halifax and Boston at the end of the nineteenth century." (E.J. Errington Social History)
