Click for availability and more information Cluny Brown, by Margery Sharp
 
Amusing story of upstairs-downstairs set in pre-WWII England . Cluny, from a very respectable, lower-class family, doesn't know her place. To the consternation of the uncle who raised her, she takes tea at the Ritz just to see what it's like. Other incidents lead her uncle to place her in service as a parlor-maid (untrained) in an English country manor. She is courted by the highly respected local chemist and seems to have found her place. But... Her story is interwoven with that of the manor family and of their guest - a Polish writer who is persona non grata at home and in Nazi Germany. Very enjoyable.
