Hello guys! I have a character, essentially, who is a young socialite who has just come to London for the Season. Through a lot of boredom, pressure, self-discovery and musing, she decides she'd rather be doing something more fulfilling with her life. Somehow, I have to get her onto the continent. I was thinking of having her show interest in the Crimean War, and the few women acting as nurses there. What would the news in London be, what would people be hearing? If I set the story a good thirty or more years later, it could also be the Boer War. Working out when she'd have to take a Boat, and when a train, and all that jazz is so difficult. I get so caught up on details when I'm writing Histoically. It's more a supernatural book than a Historical one, yet I always get caught up. Thanks for any advice about this period, anyways!
