This book mentions only how the author felt and what she experienced as far as relationships go in the world of servants in England prior to World War I. She does not say what time they had rise and go to sleep. She only describes who each person was, what they had to do, who they had to serve, and what they did when on their days off. The book ends with the author remembering that very few of the servants she worked with were around anymore. and that she would visit the ones occasionally who were.

I was not impressed with this book. Had to make myself finish it. Felt is was very boring.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

I wasn't able to finish this book. I may get it out again and finish it.
Just slow to get into to.

As usual, real life is duller than fiction. Why were Margaret Powell & her friend Mary so damned desperate to get married?

a more cohesive narrative than powell's first memoir but a little less entertaining.
