REVIEW: Heartfelt personal chronicles of love

For me, there’s history and there’s history. Start telling me about when James 25th. reigned or how Henry 8th. had to sleep with the Pope so that he could marry Anne of Cleethorpes and sell some monasteries, and those dancing cats on OnesTube suddenly seem so, so interesting. But give me some context about how life was for ordinary people and I might just look up from my ‘phone. Make it modern history – industrial revolution onwards – and it begins to touch me and to Hell with Tango Tiddles.
