Book Review – Minding the Manor

Minding the Manor: The Memoir of a 1930s English Kitchen Maid By Mollie Moran

This is a brilliant book, and this is the way memoirs should be written.

The writing flowed from one scene to the next in an engaging writing style and showed a unique view on early twentieth century Britain. Mollie Moran wrote about her time between the Great War and World War Two. Going from her childhood and into domestic service – first as a Scullery Maid and then working her way up to Cook. I liked Mollie (even though she thought she was a bit of a handful) and I love that at the end of every chapter there was a recipe used in the 1930’s along with household tips and tricks.

I give this book 5 stars and  would recommend this book to everyone 🙂
