This review is from: The Real Life Downton Abbey: How Life Was Really Lived in Stately Homes a Century Ago (Kindle Edition)
This isnt my usual type of read, but I picked it up on the kindle on an aimless day and was very glad I did. It does give some intriguing insights into the general life of servants around that era, and how they interacted with their lords and masters. I found some of it very amusing, especially the bit about the curlers (youll know what I mean when you get to it!).
Not one for a very in depth social analysis, but a well written light read with a more realistic view of what it was like to be a maid.
