      The book felt more like you were sitting down for a nice cup of tea with Rose Plummer vs. a memoir. Also learned some fascinating things about life in London I didn't know prior. The stories of East London and the poverty reminded me a lot of the book "Down and Out in Paris and London" as well as the stories I have seen on the popular BBC 4/5(42). Rose My Life in Service to Lady Astor (Book): Harrison, Rosina: In , Rosina Harrison arrived at the illustrious household of the Astor family to take up her new position as personal maid to the infamously temperamental Lady Nancy Astor, who sat in Parliament, entertained royalty, and traveled the world. She's not a lady as you would understand a lady was the butler's ominous warning.

She proved a natural candidate, with campaign trail instincts than any modern U.S. political consultant would admire.
