Anyone who knows me at all knows I’m a shoe person. I love shoes. Not impractical five-inch heels, but give me something frou frou or lace trimmed, and I adore them.
With all the glorious historical clothing and accessories, why are shoes my favorite? Have you seen any historical shoes? I’m not talking just vintage, but shoes dating back a few hundred years. Just do a quick search on Pinterest for historical shoes and start drooling.
The heroine in The Viscount’s Vow, Evangeline (Vangie) Caruthers, is a bit unusual for a Regency romance. Though she’s the daughter of a baronet, she’s also part Romani; a gypsy princess in fact. I thought I’d share some of the interesting Romani culture tidbits I came across while doing my research. These were true in 1814, the year The Viscount’s Vow is set in.
