Our past can be just as fascinating as the most exciting novel. The author Jane Fredlund gives us our own history in the flesh and blood, faces and voices. The book spans from the 1700s until the mid 1900's. It accentuates different environments; peasant cottage, mansion, the bourgeois home, poor neighborhoods and the first apartments with running water and gas stove.

The book is illustrated with documentary photographs, which further reinforces the sense of time.
