A really enjoyable historical fiction read. The main character Biddy is appealing and her experiences in situations which are not her doing make for compelling reading.

I really enjoyed this historical fiction novel about life of a poor worker in the house of wealth. It was hard for me to put down.

A serviceable page-turner. I was hoping for an elegant read; this isn't.
