I just bought and viewed a video I had found in my local library bookstore: Catherine Cookson's The Girl. The movie is loaded with everyday life: washing clothes, a butcher's business and home, a wedding, grinding coffee, etc. It actually takes place in the Victorian age but in a small North-East village which would mean that it might be slightly behind the times.
It was interesting for me to note that the wedding scene did not include the kiss.
I don't know anything about this author but I have to say that the movie kept me enthrawled. It is definately worth checking out. I posted this information here instead of the movie board because I thought it would be helpful and interesting to those who would like to see what appears to accurate historical content.
