A Victorian parsonage was a 'religious family enterprise', a showcase of ruling ideas, the headquarters of parish charities and a point of connection for multilayered networks in and outside the parish. This book focuses on the lives of women brought up in this setting, as the Church of England steered its way through the secularisation of society.

Rezensionen
"Daughters of the Anglican Clergy weaves together a great deal of material and presents a thoughtful analysis of the lives of a significant group of women in nineteenth century England." (Martin Wellings, Journal of Religious History, Literature and Culture, 2018)

"In this thoroughly researched monograph, Midori Yamaguchi offers a collective portrait of the lives of the female children of Anglican clerics during the nineteenth century. ... many readers will profit from Yamaguchi's distillation of the experience of this key aspect of the clerical household in Victorian England and her admirable ability to do this in a language other than her own native Japanese." (Arthur Burns, English Historical Review, April, 2016)

"Daughters of Anglican Clergy is an innovative and well-documented study which contributes to the social and religious history of Victorian England, as well as to nineteenth-century women's history." (Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook, Anglican and Episcopal History, Vol. 84 (2), June, 2015)

"Yamaguchi is successful in her aim of highlighting the agency of clergy daughters throughout the Victorian era. Daughters of the Anglican Clergy is an accessible, well-written and nicely illustrated volume. Though Yamaguchi is correct to stress the extent to which clergy daughters' lives were unique during this period, her study nonetheless provides a telling contribution which speaks to the broader experience of middle-class daughters in Victorian England." - Women's History Review
