At just 14, Mollie Moran left the Norfolk countryside to take up a position in the kitchens of a stately London townhouse. Getting through the endless chores, sneaking out with her best friend Flo the kitchen maid to go dancing at night, and flirting with Alan the footman and Harrods errand boys, Mollie quickly rose through the ranks.
We see the ¿upstairs, downstairs¿ world through Mollie¿s eyes: the politics and scandals, the friendships and secret liaisons, the many comings and goings. But soon the war would change Mollie¿s world, and that of those she served, for ever.
One of the best books I have ever read!!! And I have ever listened to many, many audiobooks:) To the author, please write some more about you after you left service & more old recipes they where so helpful & informative too! This is a must read:)

Listened to the audio book on holiday, and thoroughly enjoyed it! What an amazing, positive, upbeat lady to write this wonderful, well written book in her 90's. She had such a hard life in service, but Mollie enjoyed her life so much and found the positive side in everything. If you love Downton Abbey, you will love this book. Mollie is an inspiration. I cried at the end.
