Seen through the eyes of Nan, a young girl in service who worked hard all her life, these nine stories give a lively and detailed picture of life in Victorian times. Nan was Dorothy Edwards' own Auntie and the tales were told to the author when she herself was a child.

Reader's Reviews[]


The book was really good as I am a bit old for My Naughty Little Sister (by the same author). This book was really interesting.
