Synopsis

Lucy's Diary The Journal of an American Girl's Visit to England in 1870 by Lucy Rodd

Lucy's Diary is the journal of a 15-year-old American girl, Lucy Rodd, who travelled with her parents from their home in Rockford, Illinois, to England during the summer of 1870. Her account of the voyage across the Atlantic and the people and places she visited in the Westcountry and Yorkshire along the way gives a fascinating account of life in England in the mid 19th century through the eyes of a North American visitor. Despite her tragically early death at the age of 18, Lucy's original handwritten journal has survived for over 135 years.
