A peek below stairs,
This review is from: The Lady's Maid: My Life in Service (Paperback)
I just finished reading this book tonight. A thoroughly enjoyable read which offeres a fascinating insight into Rosina's life in service to the Astor famiy, primarily working as a Ladies Maid to Lady Astor. I warmed immensely to both Rosina & Lady Astor....both tigresses in their own right. Very well written, not syncophantic in any way and a true & honest account of her time there. I think Lady Astor, if alive today , after reading this book would have been both disgusted & delighted in equal measure, however I believe that in Rose, she found not only an excellent, dedicated Ladies Maid, but ultimately a true friend who gave as a good as she got and I believe she would have respected that. A great read!!
