Molly O’Malley, lady’s maid to the progressive Lady Amanda Halloway, is determined to continue the life’s work of her lost love, killed in the Peterloo Massacre. But when her efforts and a trip to Lady Halloway’s charitable orphanage culminate in her own abduction, Molly’s eyes are opened to the horrifying crimes transpiring in the city’s slums. Despite the risks, she broadens her mission and is drawn ever closer to the peril all around them. 

Thomas Flaherty, a footman in the Halloway household, has been with Molly from the beginning, but he fears she will never trust him with her heart. Even though her cause and happiness are of foremost importance to him, his loyal patience is tested by the fears that keep her at a distance. But with their safety on the line, Thomas is resolved to sacrifice everything for the woman he loves. 

Risking their lives and their love, Molly and Thomas and a team of nobles on their side will stop at nothing to empower the powerless, no matter the personal cost.

A gritty depiction of the early suffrage movement, the plight of the poor in the slums of London, and a difficult romance between a lady’s maid (thus the title) and a very patient footman. I haven’t read the book but I have listened to the Audible book and felt the narrator’s voice brought this story to life. I may not have otherwise felt so impressed with the women during that time period. Of course I knew of the history of the suffrage movement and vaguely was aware of the slums in London but this story so deftly written by this author made these times more poignant for me. The romance told in this story seemed almost secondary to everything else going on here that only by the barest of
definitions could be considered a romantic tale. However, I still can highly recommended reading this book or better, listen to the Audible version.
