Eve Williams is about to discover just how the other half really live....

Above stairs: Lord Netherwood keeps his considerable fortune ticking over with the profits from his three coal mines in the vicinity. It's just as well the coal is of the highest quality as the upkeep of Netherwood Hall, his splendid estate on the outskirts of town, doesn't come cheap. And that's not to mention the cost of keeping his wife and daughters in the latest fashions - and keeping the heir, the charming but feckless Tobias, out of trouble.

Below stairs: Eve Williams, is the wife of one of Lord Netherwood's most stalwart employees. When her ordered existence amid the terraced rows of the miners' houses is brought crashing down by the twin arrivals of tragedy and charity, Eve must look to her own self-sufficiency, and talent, to provide for her three young children. And it's then that 'upstairs' and 'downstairs' collide in truly dramatic fashion....

    " Great read, which is full of wonderful characters. I especially loved Eve and her fabulous cooking coming to life and with Anna behind her you're just cheering them on all the way. I loved the history behind the miners too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenys | 11/15/2013

    " Well it's only a potboiler really but a very good one, like soaking in a hot bath or eating a box of chocolates. Downton Abbey with different characters, couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Mckee | 11/15/2013

    " I didn't want this story to end... While it took a while to set the scene, I truly felt immersed in all the drama and hardship of the characters. I am a sucker for period novels and this one was a winner. Can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 11/8/2013

    " Misleading description, I think - there was not much time spent fleshing out the upstairs characters and only a bit of interaction between them and "downstairs" Eve. Reminded me a lot of The Tea Rose, but without the epic feel. Pleasant enough sick read. Also dying for a pot pie of some sort. "

    " Really fab book. Can't wait for the next one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 6/15/2013

    " This was a light and easy read but it lacked any surprises and the predictability took most of the enjoyment away for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 5/16/2013

    " As a 'Downton' fan. I was not disappointed, funny, warm and a charming read. Looking forward to reading the next book! "

    " Marvelous historic novel. Very informative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Bergin | 5/7/2013

    " Good Historical novel, look forward to reading its sequel when it comes out next year. "

    " Really really enjoyed this debut novel! I can't wait to read the next in the series and am waiting for September with bated breath! The main characters are wonderful, and the secondary characters are surprisingly well rounded too. A must for fans of preiod dramas and Downton Abbey!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandie | 2/23/2013

    " Classic upstairs/downstairs, but a little more positive than a lot of other English historical novels. A little less tragic, a little more inspiring. Would be a great travel book! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Foxeroo | 5/1/2012

    " my husband tried it too. he likes downton and historical novels but he gave up as well. shame. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana | 3/8/2012

    " for the downton abbey fans! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hugh Donald | 3/3/2012

    " Although I am a great fan of historical fiction I was not a fan of this book.Started reading with great enthusiasm and regretfully the further on I read the more of a chore I found it to be to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara Russell | 12/21/2011

    " Easy and undemanding read, ultimately lacking depth. There were too many cliches for my liking, and it was a bit too neat, but it was entertaining. I did like the fact that the ending veered a bit from the overall neatness and left some ends dangling, but that's to set up for a sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 12/17/2011

    " It started off really good, then took a bit of a dip in the middle but then got good again towards the end. On the whole it was an enjoyable book and I'm looking forward to the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara Wilson | 10/10/2011

    " Far too like Catherine Cookson for my taste. And as for the unbelievably rapid rise of Eve's business - well let's just say my disbelief could not be suspended that much. Definitely not for this Downton Abbey fan. "
