A glimpse into the life of a young Victroian housekeeper who knows her place in the household and walks a fine line between distancing herself and being overly familiar with those for whom she works. Short, well-written, and totally engaging.

Review by: Terry Crawford Palardy on Dec. 13, 2011 :
This is a delightful glimpse of a special day in the life of a young housekeeper, keeping Christmas for her Master and Mistress and their various assorted relatives, and keeping their secrets as well. I liked the easy flow of what might have been stilted language (though I did see an awkward place about half way through.) They were an engaging group of characters, very well developed for such a short piece, and i would like to read more of their story.
