Midwest Book Review: “a choice addition to historical fiction…”

“Life in the nineteenth century was so very different to the world as we know it. Prelude, A Novel: & The 1854 Diary of Adeline Elizabeth Hoe is a unique blend of history, autobiography, and creativity. Author Helen Taylor Davidson draws upon the real-life diary of Adeline Hoe as the source for this involving novel. A fascinating glimpse into everyday life of the period, Prelude, A Novel & The 1854 Diary of Adeline Elizabeth Hoe is a choice addition to historical fiction and autobiography collections.”
