Miss Rose Buck

Rose Buck was the upper house parlourmaid at Eaton Place for almost forty years.

After the Bellamy family left the house she left service and eked out a living running a domestic employment agency – but a twist of fate brought Lady Agnes to her door. Initially engaged purely to recruit the servants for the Hollands, Rose soon proved herself indispensible to the running of the house. A business deal became an emotional adventure, and Rose became a permanent member of the staff in the spring of 1936. But her recent illness has removed Rose from her beloved 165, and her absence is felt keenly by its inhabitants. As events inside and out threaten both upstairs and down, can Rose help guide those inside 165 Eaton Place?
