Through her diaries we learn about "The Bloomsbury Group" seen from a different angle.Grace followed her employer to St. Tropez in the South of France, to Charleston, and of course; London.
These visits are delightfully commented on, and we learn a lot about household difficulties but also about distinguished guests and life in general.
Many incidents however,are left out, and if one is not familiar with the story behind "The Bloomsbury Group", it can be somewhat hard to follow the author's comments some of the time.
But all in all, it is an interesting voice we hear.
In Grace's own words: "They were my sort of people. I was very fond of them all."
