In The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, pampered Margaret Macy flees her home in London to avoid marrying a dishonorable man. Now, with no money and no place to stay, Margaret does the unthinkable: she takes a job as a housemaid in the home of two brothers - both of whom are former suitors. As an “invisible” observer, Margaret realizes she may have misjudged one brother and wonders if it’s too late to win his admiration.

Only just makes it as a Romance novel !!

This was a good enough story and very insightful as to the servant's lives and duties but it just didn't have enough romance in it to ring my bell - infact it wasn't until the very very very end (I'm talking last chapter!) that they got together.

If it's a history lesson you want then this is your kinda book but if you're looking for historical romance then pass on this one and look elsewhere.

Would I listen to it again - No

Worth the credit - No - way too slow for me

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Interesting and enlightening

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to friends. I is very interesting to hear about the upper class in relationship to the servants. Servants were very loyal. I found it very interesting.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Maid of Fairbourne Hall?

When she was learning about how the servants worked so hard and found how unappreciative she had previously been


Which scene was your favorite?

Several scenes were really good but I can't say I had a favorite scene. I enjoyed all of them.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have liked to listen to it in one sitting however life does go on.


Any additional comments?

I really enjoy historically based novels. For some reason they grab my attention more than others. I enjoyed this book very much
