Backstairs Life in a Country House: Complete & Unabridged
Eileen Balderson's mother died when she was just thirteen years of age, and she was urged into domestic service by her father so that she would always have a secure home. Her book covers the years from 1931 to the early post-war period, when her time in service was spent in a succession of country houses, first as a between-maid and then as a housemaid. Her straight-forward and detailed account of life backstairs shows the gentry were not the monsters or buffoons portrayed in certain books and television programs.
