ROSE My Life in Service to Lady Astor

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Wanda McCaddon

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Listeners are in for a treat with this audiobook of Rosina Harrison’s life in service to Lady Nancy Astor, wife of Waldorf Astor. As a lady’s maid, Rose’s life was one of service and splendor. She traveled the world with Lady Astor and enjoyed every minute of it. The superb Wanda McCaddon takes the listener through a time warp and plants us in the early twentieth century, when ocean liners are the chief means of transportation and being a lady’s maid is a desirable profession. With élan McCaddon transitions from Rose’s Yorkshire accent to Lady Astor’s witty outspoken cadence—as well as to the voices of the many other staff as they recount their anecdotes. It’s a delight for the ears and a feast for the imagination. E.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
