Summary

This delightful memoir provides a unique Upstairs, Downstairs account of what life was really like in a bygone era  

At the age of 16, Flo Wadlow left her family to begin what would become a distinguished life "in service." Starting as a kitchen maid in London, she soon rose through the ranks and worked at many of England's great houses, including Woodhall in Hilgay, where she met scullery maid Mollie Moran, author of Aprons and Silver Spoons; and Hatfield House and Blicking Hall. By her early 20s, Flo was in charge of the kitchen and cooked for prime ministers and royalty. 

Over a Hot Stove is a must-listen for fans of Downton Abbey.
