Publisher: London Michael Joseph 2013
ISBN: 9780718159993 (pbk.) :
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 - cooking huge roast dinners, polishing silverware, scrubbing doorsteps and covering up her employers' scandals.
