I’m not usually a huge fan of Regency-era novels (with the exception of Jane Austen’s works, of course), but this book captured my attention.
The idea of a lady becoming a maid and learning what domestic service is all about is a fascinating one. There were so many period details in the story, little small things, that made the book captivating to read. We follow Margaret aka Nora, as she tries to learn how to do the things she’d taken for granted for so long. There is a romance in the book as well, but for me, the novel’s strength comes from the atmosphere the author creates along with the many side characters, all servants, who help (or don’t) the heroine.
The writing is precise, with a good command of pacing. I do wish the shifts from present to a past occurrence had been less abrupt, less “she thought back on that time…” making the reader feel like the image should be hazing over like in a B movie. That’s really the only thing that bothered me a bit, but since it doesn’t happen too many times, it can be overlooked.
This was a fun read that I can recommend to lovers of historical fiction.
