Abstract:

"This book overturns the prejudices of Victorian London's middle class moralists and reformers, who equated poverty with depravity, by presenting and analyzing an extraordinary range of hitherto unpublished firsthand documents: love letters and testimonies from working class women who faced pregnancy alone, and from their suitors, relatives and employers. These unique and moving writings provide the fullest and most accurate picture to date of love and sex among the poor in Victorian London."--Amazon.co.uk.

"Francoise Barret-Ducrocq relies on firsthand documents uncovered in now-closed archives of a London foundling hospital : love letters and testemonies from working-class women discussing love and sex romance and rape, flirtation and prostitution, promises made and not kept, and the inevitability of facing pregnancy alone."--Fom back cover.
