“Anyone who enjoyed Downton Abbey or Upstairs Downstairs will relish this feisty memoir.” ―Dame Eileen Atkins, co-creator of Upstairs, Downstairs
“Margaret Powell was the first person outside my family to introduce me to that world, so near and yet seemingly so far away, where servants and their employers would live their vividly different lives under one roof. Her memories, funny and poignant, angry and charming, haunted me until, many years later, I made my own attempts to capture those people for the camera. I certainly owe her a great debt.” ―Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
The glimpse it gives you into the lives of Domestic help and, how hard people worked for so little pay, just amazed me. A simple but. well written book. I loved it.Published 1 month ago by Candy Craven
