This one I can cheerfully recommend to anyone interested in learning about the servant classes who worked on the great English estates. It's informative, smartly written, and full of little things that I had not known before. If you liked the films Manor House, Gosford Park
or Downton Abbey,
you'll probably want to find this book. Very much recommended and a keeper for me.
