I do not recommend this book

I was very disappointed to find one of Jerry Robbins books to have a homosexual scene in it. It also had a lot of swearwords in it. I do not recommend this book.

Love This Show!

I'm a huge fan of Colonial Radio Theatre anyway, so when I found this I was so happy! I've listened to those program multiple times and the writing and the characters are fantastic. I love the grandmother, she cracks me up. This is a wonderful upstairs/downstairs drama, and it has become one of my favorites from this company.

Great for Downton Abby Fans

It took me a while to get over the really pretty bad english accents and the forced precise language of the above stairs characters but once i did i really enjoyed this. I was particularly impressed that homosexuality is acknowledged in this series as a normal part of life, above stairs and below, Just like it was referenced in Downton Abby. I gave this Chronicle an extra star just for this extra bit of realism. Very very well done! Keep your expectations in cheek and don't expect Julian Fellows type writing and Oscar winning voice performances. If you can manage that you will count this a credit well spent. I'm so sad there is not a third series! I want to know what happens next.
