“A Date with Judy,” (1957, vol. 61)

Judith (1978) is the third in a series of historical novels set in late eighteenth-century England written by the Irish-based author Brian Cleeve.    Like its predecessors (Sara, 1975, and Kate, 1977), the protagonist of Judith is a young independent-minded woman who tries to make her way in a largely inhospitable and sometimes terrifying world – focusing on the difficulties faced by women in a hierarchical society dominated by men. Through Judith’s experiences in late nineteenth-century London, the reader is confronted with the harsh life of those who lack the privileges of position and money.

I’m expecting “bodice ripper” more than historical accuracy.  I wonder why I haven’t seen the movie?
