    One thought on “Our Elizabeth”

    1. Funny, light summer reading--free download from Gutenberg.The domestic dramas of Netta Warrington and her domestic with a heart of gold, Elizabeth. Bit like Diary of a Provincial Lady"The annoying thing about Henry [husband], too, is his lack of discernment regarding men. I have known him speak glowingly, and with unabated enthusiasm, of 'a most interesting chap' he has met at his club, referring to him as 'altogether delightful,' 'a charming conversationalist,' and so on, until I have felt impe [...]

    2. A book of its time and period, but I found the "aren't the lower classes quaint" attitude very grating. Some amusing passages, but not as good as the first two Provincial Lady books for me.

    3. This is a pleasantly appealing bit of froth. There was a tendency to drop little spoilers here and there but overall it was an entertaining light read.

Elizabeth believes that these two shou [...]

    5. GoodA nice story about a domestic helper (Elizabeth) who tends to stick her nose into everything. Elizabeth drives the lady of the house crazy but she can't get rid of Elizabeth because of a shortage of domestic help.
