Even though the novel is set in the early 1900s, the language is more modern. The author has likely done this in order to make readers feel more comfortable. The characters still use terminology that would be common to the time period, such as Kathleen's reference to "frippery and foppery" when reading fashion magazines. There is some cursing but it is infrequent and is confined to only rough characters such as Jameel.
