An excellent choice for book clubs. There is lots of background on women's suffrage, the attitudes of women in the aristocracy and of course the harsh lives lead by the downstairs staff... stuff they don't allude to on T.V.
Writing style is sometimes a bit disjointed but does not take away from a great biography and fascinating story of a Canadian woman.

This was a terrific, Canadian book sutitable for bookclubs. The story of Dora was very similar to that of my Scottish grandmother who ran away from home at age of 11 and became a ladies' maid.
