Below Stairs is the true story of Margaret Powell who worked as a kitchen maid – the lowest of the low – in 1920’s England. I appreciated the book for its honesty, directness, and the informative way in which it was written. I also appreciated the integrity with which Margaret wrote – she wasn’t backward at coming forward about expressing the anger and contempt she felt for some of those she worked for.
Overall I found Below Stairs to be a funny, honest, and charming read.
Margaret was born in 1907 in Hove and died in 1984 at the age of 77.
