A book that will greatly enhance understanding of the situation of single women in the nineteenth-century South, An Evening When Alone presents the journals of four very different women who, although their lives were worlds apart, each lived and wrote in the South during the years 1827-67. Intimate and revealing, these journals provide refreshing insight into the joys and travails of "ordinary" single women in the nineteenth century South: courtship, disappointed love, illness, the gratifications and pains of female friendship, the grief of the Civil War, the ambivalences of family life, and the difficulty and consolation of religion.
Rezension: A stately carriage ride into another world, this is a collection of journals kept by four single women in the American South before the Civil War. The diarists--a society belle of South Carolina, a Virginia gentlewoman, an elderly spinster, and a governess transplanted from the North living on a Mississippi plantation--provide a captivating look at life in an age when the written word was valued highly. The four women opened their hearts in their diaries, and today's readers are thus given a very unusual chance to engage their thoughts on life, family, the heartbreaks of the Civil War, and the details of their day to day lives.
