Miss Million's Maid

by Bertha Ruck

Two things surprised me with this book. First, there's a lot of class prejudice, aside from the workings of the story. The author tends to sneer at working people and generally makes them less attractive and less intelligent than the upper class characters. Second, she has a real problem with Jews. Her depictions of them are downright ugly. This really detracted from the "fun and froth" aspects of the book.
