Minding the Manor

The Memoir of a 1930s English Kitchen Maid


This is a really interesting book, kind of like Downton Abbey, only all real. A fun read full of facts of the household "goings-on," the staff or help, and the family from the author's memories of life as a young kitchen maid (or scullery maid) in 1930s England. It includes Mollie's rise to become a cook. The book also describes the lovely villages and area in England and contains lots of insight of life in pre-WWII England. The lady who wrote this book was in her 90s and she is brilliant!
