I found this book profiled in the book "1001 Midnights" which covers lots of great mystery books. Mrs. Munck was described as in the psychological suspense genre.

It definitely was not a mystery, and the only suspense was whether Rose was going to kill Mr Leary or not. Both characters were so unlikeable that I didn't really care one way or the other.

Rose grew up on a farm with parents who were cold and unnurturing. She leaves the farm and finds a job in the city.
Her much older boss, Mr. Leary

This is a dark story because it is full of disappointment and revenge. However, it is well written and, on some level, satisfying. The narrator, Mrs. Munck, comes full circle in her life and avenges herself on those who hurt her most.
