Historical Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Having grown up in a grand house in which her mother served as housekeeper, Weldon is well acquainted with the ins and outs of the British class system. She brings that expertise to the second book in her trilogy, which began with HABITS OF THE HOUSE. As 1901 draws to an end, everyone is looking forward to the coronation of Edward VII and scheming over how to secure an invitation. Katherine Kellgren is the perfect narrator to bring to life the pre-Downton Abbey worlds of "them that has and those what serve 'em." She's expert at delivering the dialogue with the required class nuances. Her narration displays subtle shadings of humor, irony, and snarkiness as she shines a light on the rapidly changing worlds of the served and the servers.
