Very Victorian #Work from Home Problems

As the #corona virus lock-down continues,  characters in the novel Jane Eyre Gets Real by Annabelle Troy remind you that #quarantine was no cinch for Victorians either.

  1. Hi, I’ve always thought I could live in this era. I would definitely have to be a member of the Ton and live in a Downton Abby type house though. Also, no eel pie! Eeew!

    1. Yes, to go back in time and be rich would be wonderful fun! I might even eat a jellied eel if I absolutely had to!! Thank you for reading and for commenting. Annabelle
