The 2014 Salon Favourites

A happy new year to one and all; I do hope you enjoyed the festive period and that 2015 will be a happy, healthy and very Georgian year! 

Here at the Guide, I will be bringing you a whole host of wonderful guest authors as well as continuing to share stories of the glorious Georgian era. To ring in the new year, however, I present a look back at the most popular posts of each month of 2014, based on the recommendations of you, my esteemed salon visitors! 

Don't forget to gad across and meet my salon guests too; I have had the privilege of hosting some of the best bloggers and writers of the long 18th century on topics from politics to mermaids and everything in between!

Note: Where two posts in one month have been recommended an equal number of times, both are listed.
