The appeal of such a program to Day, who himself bucked most social niceties and particularly despised them in women, is clear. Not surprisingly, most parents were far from eager to sentence their daughters to this cruel regime. On a broader level, How to Create the Perfect Wife works well as an introduction to some of the most important developments of eighteenth-century Britain.

Day himself was an important figure in the early abolitionist movement, and even opposed the American Revolution on these grounds. For the most part, Moore does an excellent job weaving these elements into the main story of Day and Sabrina, but she occasionally stretches a bit too far to make connections. But these are minor flaws in an otherwise impressive, engaging, and thoroughly entertaining work.
Moore succeeds in portraying her characters, especially the orphan girls, both sympathetically and perceptively. The appeal of How to Create the Perfect Wife is remarkably broad; it should find an audience among both casual readers and professional historians. Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Stanton Foundation.

By Wendy Moore. Here is an amazing story told incredibly well. Day told Edgeworth that "if all the books in the world were to be destroyed, the second book he would save, after the Bible, would be Emile" Edgeworth raised his own son, Dick, strictly according to Rousseau's novel and child-centered principles.
In , Day and Edgeworth even took six-year-old Dick on a pilgrimage to meet the great Rousseau in Paris. Dick's education did not quite work out as expected; he grew into a lazy and unhappy adult and died young.
