Beautiful and spirited, Grace seems to stand with the world at her feet. But then a family tragedy obliges Grace to abandon her talents and enter a life in service at the Keston Hall. In this upstairs downstairs world of sadistic housekeepers and drunken butlers, there is genuine hardship and drudgery for those employed in servicing the few.

Pickpick

I found a new great writer - Charlotte Bingham. Her book Nanny is a vivid and panoramic picture of England in the early twentieth century with the order, political moves and drastic changes in society after the First World War, the sinking of the Titanic, the revolution in Russia and the Irish liberation struggle.Very strong and descriptive novel! 544 pages of purely spiritual and emotional experience with multi-layered and realistic characters!

Started this today, which was a recent Kindle deal. I‘m already ticked off at most of the characters other than the already put -upon MC. She is interesting and sympathetic, but pretty most of the others have me wanting to either punch them or give them a good shake. Not what I would call an auspicious start.
