Welcome to the Genevieve LaViolette blog

Welcome to the first of the blog posts from Genevieve LaViolette.  I am not so sure that these blogs were around in the Regency Period which is the era that I am usually writing about. In those days, messengers carried hand written notes between correspondents. As you can imagine, this method of delivery was fraught with inconsistencies often dictated by the distance from writer to receiver. Letters could take months and even years to reach their destinations. This increased the drama in the lives of those living in this glorious period.

The lost art of writing letters.

I hope that you will join me as I explore the history of the Regency Period as seen through the eyes of those who were there. The people of that era lived through extreme hardships that are difficult for those of us living in the twenty first century to imagine .
