About this book
The charming memoirs of a pre-war domestic servant, who became a scullery maid at the age of 14. Following the huge success of "Downton Abbey" and "Call The Midwife", period and nostalgia memoirs are all the rage. The redoubtable author of this one is now 96, and remains friends with Flo the kitchen maid from her first household more than 80 years on.
When young Mollie became a 'skivvy' in a stately London townhouse aged just 14, she quickly learned that a large amount of elbow grease and a sense of humour would be tantamount to surviving there. Through Mollie's eyes we are offered a fascinating glimpse into London's invisible 'downstairs', a world that has long-since vanished.
