"Just like the cookbooks of the period it represents, Managing Clover Lawn is a guide not only to nineteenth-century cooking, but also to the life of Sarah Davis.... This book was created to give a glimpse of what a traditional meal prepared by Sarah Davis might have tasted like, and to provide a taste of the life and spirit of Mrs. David Davis, whose hands would have turned the pages of her very own cookbook."
