Really an informative book...showed tough xs and how hard the help had to work during this era.... and the levels of the society ...ignorance of many privileged....narrator was great and the author really was very detailed.
A lovely re-imaging of Pride and Prejudice. Also a real eyeopener to what life was like for those who lived in the lower working classes during the Regency era.
This book was not the best story I've ever read, but it was exactly what I was in the mood for. Sometimes I just need a good historical fiction read and this delivered. Since Downton Abbey ended I try to find stories that revolve around "the help" so I was happy to find this. Also the narrator was perfect.
I was really looking forward to listening to this book after the description. It started off strong but moved into some very long and boring side stories about many of the secondary characters. I'm actually not sure who the protagonist of this book was supposed to be.
