Summary

A girl angry at her mother's latest marriage discovers she has slipped in time back to the early 19th century where she is a servant girl in her godmother's old house.

Evie couldn't be angrier with her mother. She's only gone and got married again and has flown off on honeymoon, sending Evie to stay with a godmother she's never even met in an old, creaky house in the middle of nowhere. It is all monumentally unfair.

But on the first night in her godmother's spare room, Evie notices a strange message scratched into the windowpane, and everything she thought she knew gets turned upside down.

After a ghastly night's sleep Evie wakes up in 1814, dressed as a housemaid, and certain she's gone back in time for a reason. A terrible injustice needs to be fixed.
But there's a housekeeper barking orders, a bad-tempered master to avoid, and the chamber pots won't empty themselves. It's going to take all Evie's cunning to fix things in the past so that nothing will break apart in the future.

NOTE: Sixteen year old character is locked in her room for refusing an arranged loveless marriage for mutual financial benefit for two families. Main character who has gone back in time is constantly slapped and worked for extensive hours doing housework tasks with complex repetitive long-winded procedures she finds almost impossible to comprehend.

NOTE : Book banded by Peters.
