This book does seem irritating today, simply because the heroine is unrealisticly perfect. She is rich people's dream of the hardworking, ever content-with-her-place in life, ever-serving woman, who then, as in a Cinderella story, gets her reward in being chosen by a marquess. It is a fairy tale that turns into a nightmare in the continuation of the book. The nightmare is more interesting than the fairytale.
