Using contemporary novels, letters, biographies and poetry, this book brings forward the voices of the past to give their own comments and views on a wide range of issues which may have influenced that decision.

Individuals in fact and fiction discuss families, love and marriage, as well as childbearing, child survival and what children meant to them - and their reactions to unwanted pregnancies. Their experiences reflect and amplify the demographic evidence of the period, and add life to the statistics.

In the same way, their perspectives on education, religion and the ideas and controversies of the period, as well as on social mobility and social change, provide personal notes to the historical background against which their voices are heard.
