Lady's Maid by Margaret Forster (
For clarity (and with thanks to Gizmopuddy & Microsquid) I will 'rank' my bookshelf with the following system:
10: Excellent, at the top of its category. This book has impacted me deeply, challenged me profoundly, or has just been a pure delight to read.
9: Really great book, with most (but not all) of the elements of a perfect 10.
8: Great book, gripping, well written, one that I would recommend to others.
7: Good book, enjoyable
6: Decent read, interesting, but didn’t grab me in a big way
5: Not my type of book, but I can see why other people would like it.
4: Only OK. Could take it or leave it.
3 Has major problems. I don’t recommend it.
2: Irritatingly bad. Life is too short!
1: It's hard to imagine anyone liking this book. Total waste of trees.
