Our customer reviews

"This book is a fabulous reference to the ways of Household Management. Who cares if you dont like the author the books contents is spot on. The only problem with this book is the lack of illustrations, which I had expected and I think would be a valuable part. If you need the motivation and the tools to succeed as a homemaker this is it! Buy it as a present for all the homemakers and housewives you know, whether they say it or not, they will use it! Anthea, when will you release the manual!!"show more
