(The second book in the Upstairs Downstairs series)
A novel by Charlotte Bingham, Terence Brady and Mollie Hardwick
The idea for ROSE'S STORY originated with the hugely successful television series UPSTAIRS, DOWNSTAIRS, in which Rose played a prominent part as head housemaid to the Bellamy family. The authors, husband-and-wife team Terence Brady and Charlotte Bingham, have taken Rose's television character as the basis of their novel and have produced a fascinating account of the experiences that led Rose to the house in Eaton Square and into service with the Bellamys. A novel of a servant girl growing up on the great country estates of Southwold. Rose was born there while Queen Victoria still reigned and it was accepted that she should enter service as a humble housemaid. But the whims of the gentry, so highly thought of by the innocent girl, took Rose to the bustling streets of London where she encountered a new world. A world of motor cars and such new-fangled inventions as the telephone and the vacuum cleaner.
