I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad). The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.
This was a GREAT read. I really liked the way it was told, always from Grace's point of view. Starting with her in 1999 at the age of 99 and then going back to her days as a house maid and then lady's maid. I got a bit annoyed with the confusion between Grace and Alfred and the fact that she chose Hannah, a family member, who she serves, and doesn't acknowledge her as family, over a man she could have had a really happy life with. Also despite going back over the last few chapters, I couldn't work out what Hannah had left for Grace in the box. This really bugs me, but other than those small criticisms this is the best book I've read in a long time.
