As a kitchen maid, it's not just being at the beck and call of the people upstairs that's difficult, but having to deal with temperamental cooks, starchy butlers and chauffeurs with a roving eye. Marriage is the only escape, but with just one evening off a week, Margaret has no time to lose. Between Perce the bus conductor (who brings his mother on dates) and Mr. Hailsham the elderly fishmonger (who looks increasingly like his wares), her initial prospects are hardly the stuff of dreams. Then she meets Albert the milkman. Could he be the man she's been waiting for? And, having spent their whole lives serving others, can they start to figure out what they want for themselves?
