by Jennie Walters

For 'Downton Abbey' fans! Scandal, romance and intrigue in a grand old English country house: Swallowcliffe Hall, home to the aristocratic Vye family and the staff who look after them. When Polly Perkins starts work at the Hall, she finds it hard to learn the manners and etiquette expected of her. Life at Swallowcliffe is a whirl of shooting parties, picnics and balls, and an army of servants is required to look after the guests. Housemaids are meant to be seen and not heard, and nobody takes much notice of the quiet young girl who lights their fires and empties their slops. But Polly is sharp-eyed and quick-witted, and gradually she uncovers a secret lurking in the shadows of the Hall's elegant rooms - a secret that will end up breaking her heart. When a young American heiress arrives to stay at Swallowcliffe, Polly must decide whether the time has come for her to reveal what she knows.

'At last I wiped my face and walked slowly back to the servants' hall. The family and their guests had begun filing out, already in pairs, for their procession into dinner... What if one of them had seen me, and even happened to glance at my face? "She has probably had some squabble with the parlourmaids," this person might have thought, "or perhaps the housekeeper has had reason to speak sharply to her, or someone left a smaller tip than she was expecting. That is the trouble with servants these days. They are never satisfied!"
I was very bitter, which you will no doubt understand and forgive.'
