The story is set around the life of Mary Addams , a servant, new to life in London . Mary comes from a poor family not unfamiliar with hardship and cruelty , but she dreams of making huge changes to her life and future by leaving home . I love a story about someone moving to the big city to change their life in terrific ways , gaining life experiences , meeting exotic people and that's exactly what I got from this story , a girl from nowhere special ,experiencing so many wonderful cultural enrichments to her life ,in this case art and artists , who she would never have met otherwise was thrilling and Mary herself was engaging , a little innocent perhaps , but it only made her more likeable . I loved this book and recommend it to anyone especially if you liked Upstairs/ Downstairs or Downton Abbey.
