Description
In this 1979 follow-up to her wildly popular memoir Below Stairs—a primary inspiration for Upstairs, Downstairs and Downton Abbey—Margaret Powell relates a true romantic story all but unthinkable to most young women in service. Rosalie, a parlourmaid to the Wardham Family at Redlands, was an exceptionally pretty girl, with "lovely creamy skin, the bluest of eyes, and thick golden hair that waved naturally." When, in the 1920s, she eloped with the Wardham's only son Gerald, Rose was caught up in a maelstrom of gossip and incredulity among her fellow servants, while the master of the house completely disowned his son. Yet Powell looks on with envy, even as the marriage hits on bumpy times: "To us in the servants' hall, it was just like a fairy tale.... How I wished I was in her shoes."
