This book opens a window into the lives of British spinsters in the mid-seventeenth to mid-nineteenth centuries, assessing the opportunities open to them and the restrictions placed upon them within different social classes, occupations, and periods. Hill examines how often spinsters were able to earn enough money to live independently, She looks at the part single women played in religious organisations and the role of friendship and letter-writing in their daily lives. She describes the nature of close relationships between women, some lesbian but many others not. Exploring the spinsters' possibilities of escape from restrictive lives, particularly by emigration or crossdressing, she discusses how successful these were. She provides details about the degree of surveillance single women suffered from the authorities and how often they were seen as a threat to social order. Finally she addresses the question of whether all spinsters of this era were suffering victims or potential viragoes, or neither.

Along with six other wagons the Jackson family had been on the trail for weeks and grueling weeks now. The little house back in Decatur had been sold to Jacob’s sister and her husband. There would be no turning back. The wind swept prairie was behind them now and the Rocky Mountains lay ahead. Surely after a solid meal and a good night’s rest her husband would get most of his strength back. …. Late that afternoon most of those on the wagon train stood around a freshly dug grave. Two doves cooed from a nearby tree. The gray clouds that hovered low all morning and earlier that afternoon were now black and rain came down in big fat drops. Ben Handover read the twenty-third psalms from his Bible and then said a few kind words about his friend Jacob Jackson. He talked about what a fair man Jacob had been as well as a hard worker. Then there was only the sound of rain splashing off of umbrellas for a full minute before a woman’s beautiful voice alone sang the fi rst verse of ‘Amazing Grace’ and then the others joined in. The day seemed like a nightmare to Lydia. Between tears she tried to comfort Jacobs’s two children. … With objections from the majority of their fellow travelers Lydia and the children were allowed to continue on with the wagon train. At the end of the trail Lydia and the children set up a comfortable home in the small log cabin build on the land that Jacob had registered to homestead on. He had staked the land out on his previous trip to the Oregon territory. She knew before they started the new adventure that life in the wilds was going to be harsh; but this wasn’t the way it was supposed go. This was Jacob’s dream.

Ten stories from the 'brilliant' Katherine Mansfield on the theme of women alone. As Vincent O'Sullivan states, those encountering Mansfield's stories for the first time have invariably found they 'were alive, they were witty, they were moving, they covered new ground'. But with about 70 stories to choose from and a vast array of themes and approaches, where do you start, and how do you begin to understand and best appreciate her writing and achievements? This series features selections of her best stories, grouped by subject and introduced by Mansfield scholar Vincent O'Sullivan, who is also a writer of fiction in his own right. Each volume offers a different way to view Mansfield's work. This selection focuses on a theme close to her own experience: the woman alone. As O'Sullivan explains, his choices cover 'everything of importance that happened to her, that she observed and experienced, between childhood in Wellington's wooden houses, to her deciding in Switzerland in July 1922, that her final paragraph about a singing bird was the place for her to stop'.

The long, bare room had never been graced by a picture or a curtain. Its only furniture was twenty narrow iron cots. Four girls were scrubbing the warped, wide-planked floor, three of them pitifully young for the hard work, the baby of them being only six, the oldest nine. The fourth, who directed their labors, rising from her knees sometimes to help one of her small crew, was just turned sixteen, but she looked in her short, skimpy dress of faded blue and white checked gingham, not more than twelve or thirteen. "Sal-lee," the six-year-old called out in a coaxing whine, as she sloshed a dirty rag up and down in a pail of soapy water, "play-act for us, won't you, Sal-lee? 'Tend like you're a queen and I'm your little girl. I'd be a princess, wouldn't I, Sal-lee?" The child sat back on her thin little haunches, one small hand plucking at the skimpy skirt of her own faded blue and white gingham, an exact replica, except for size, of the frocks worn by the three other scrubbers. "I'll 'tend like I've got on a white satin dress, Sal-lee-" Sally Ford lifted a strand of fine black hair that had escaped from the tight, thick braid that hung down her narrow back, tucked it behind a well-shaped ear, and smiled fondly upon the tiny pleader. It was a miracle-working smile. Before the miracle, that small, pale face had looked like that of a serious little old woman, the brows knotted, the mouth tight in a frown of concentration. But when she smiled she became a pretty girl. Her blue eyes, that had looked almost as faded as her dress, darkened and gleamed like a pair of perfectly matched sapphires. Delicate, wing-like eyebrows, even blacker than her hair, lost their sullenness, assumed a lovely, provocative arch. Her white cheeks gleamed. Her little pale mouth, unpuckered of its frown, bloomed suddenly, like a tea rose opening. Even, pointed, narrow teeth, to fit the narrowness of her delicate, childish jaw, flashed into that smile, completely destroying the picture of a rather sad little old woman which she might have posed for before.
