About All Men Glad and Wise:
Part coming-of-age and part cozy mystery, All Men Glad and Wise confronts a time of tremendous social change: the inequities of service jobs, the quandaries of grooms as technology advances, and the patriarchal assumptions that exclude women from valued work and riding astride. Harry, like horsemanship-and like England-is on the cusp of a world looking forward.
