Inhaltsangabe: "Absorbing...Heartbreaking...Forster paints a vivid picture of class, station, hypocrisy and survival in Victorian society....Grips the reader's imagination on every page."
She was Elizabeth Barrett's lady's maid. But "Wilson" was more than that. She was a confidante, friend and conspirator in Elizabeth's forbidden romance with Robert Browning. Wilson stayed with Elizabeth for sixteen years, through every trial and crisis, and when Wilson's affairs took a dramatic turn she expected the same loyalty from Elizabeth....

Vom Verlag: This is an intimate and complex look at the relations between the classes in the mid-nineteenth century. Women of all classes had far fewer choices in lifestyle than women do today; however, if you were the "Lady's Maid", as Lily was to Elizabeth Barrett Browning, your choices were limited by your class to an even greater extent, and therein lies the subtle tragedy of this book.

This is a thought provoking and well wrought novel. The truth is that the freedom that feminists have won for today's women is far more real for women of the middle and upper classes than for working class or poor women. The legacy lives on.

If you enjoyed Margaret Atwood's ALIAS GRACE, LADY'S MAID is an novel you will really enjoy.
