A Russian Countess Serves an English Family

Still intrigued by the British history of the upper crust being served by the downstairs staff as dramatized in the Downton Abbey series?  Then check out this incredibly well done young adult audio book for a great mix of romantic fluff and history.  First published in 1981, this classic follows the path of a Russian countess who cheerfully becomes a maid on an English estate after World War I.  Filled with wit and seeds that hint at the Nazi agenda, I recommend this one for a good road trip.
