Description

In 1914, despite the clouds of war threatening Europe, Pearl Gibson's future is bright. She has secured a position as a lady's maid to a wealthy Northumberland aristocrat, a job that will win her not only respect but an opportunity to travel and live in luxury. Her new life at Lady Ottoline Campbell's Scottish summer estate is a whirlwind of intrigue and glamour, scandals and confidences-and surprisingly, a strange but intimate friendship with her employer. But when violence erupts in Europe, Pearl and Ottoline's world is irrevocably changed. As the men in their lives are called to the front lines, leaving them behind to anxiously brace for bad news, Pearl realizes she must share one final secret with her mistress-a secret that will bind them together forever...

Professional reviews

"Kinghorn's story of the close relationship between lady's maid Pearl Gibson and her highborn employer, Ottoline Campbell, will no doubt find listeners among fans of richly detailed historical fiction. However, there may be mixed reactions to narrator Lucy Rayner's exaggerated performance. Rayner is adept at switching between the Cockney of Pearl's speech and the well-spoken voice of the same character's inner monologue in the first person point of view. But the stark difference between the two is somewhat jarring. Furthermore, her style is a bit over-the-top, with words overarticulated and the pace, consequently, slower than necessary.
