The Secret of the Ruby Ring - Yvonne MacGrory
What a delightful kids book! I really enjoyed this book, and I think I would have loved it if I had read it as a kid originally. It was a great way to learn about daily life for the majority of people in the 1800s (i.e., the servant class, as opposed to the wealthy), and it was yet another book that made me deeply grateful for not having been born in that era when most people could expect nothing more than a lifetime of physical work to keep a few wealthy people comfortable. Highly recommended.
