Biggest take-away from this book -- having your own personal ladies maid would be truly AWESOME! Unfortunately, it would seem that I am serving in the capacity of ladies maid to my children with all the picking up and fetching that I do for them.

This account by Lady Astor's maid painted an interesting picture of life in service, as well as an intimate look at the Astor family from her unique perspective. I enjoyed reading and learning more about this period of time in England. I had read Five Sisters: The Langhornes of Virginia several years ago, but it was fun to read about Nancy from her maid's perspective.
