KIRKUS REVIEW

Plenty of human interest appeal, in this backstairs view of England at war, through the letters written to the author by her cook in London, from September 1939 to October 1941. Annie reports to her mistress in America on Mr. B's safety, the daily dilemmas, the flight of neighbors, visitors and guests, bombings, rationing, the hunt for food, the pets, acceptance of war news, good and bad -- and her unrivalled optimism that they will all be reunited. A new reflection of the British spirit, and an original angle on the scene.
