If you liked Downton Abbey and Upstairs, Downstairs , it's time to discover the true story in Mollie Moran's Sunday Times charming bestselling memoir of life as a s kitchen maid. When young Mollie became a 'skivvy' in a stately London townhouse aged just 14, she quickly learned that she would need a large amount of elbow grease and a sense of humour. Through Mollie's eyes we are offered a fascinating glimpse into London's invisible 'downstairs', a world that has long-since vanished: cooking huge roast dinners, polishing doorknobs, scrubbing steps - and covering up her employers' scandals.

Orders are sent with either Royal Mail or Parcelforce. I liked the way she portrayed the characters, and its simplicity is part of its charm. If so, why. She didn't try tons of accents, she made them seem real Did you have ajd extreme reaction to this book.
Mollie is a likeable character, 'high on life'. I love Nicolette McKenzie's narration; she can read a phone book and make it interesting. DPReview Digital Si,ver. Quantity Add to basket.
