    Jean Marsh, who played Rose in the TV series 'Upstairs Downstairs', reads John Hawkesworth’s classic novelisation. It is 1905, and the Bellamys reside in Eaton Place, in the heart of London’s Belgravia. Above stairs, Lady Marjorie runs the house and plans her husband’s future in the government. Below stairs, Rose and Sarah, the maids, pursue their duties beneath the ever-watchful eye of Mr Hudson, the butler....

    Was Upstairs Downstairs worth the listening time?

    The narrator couldn't pull me into the story, which actually wasn't that bad. I gave up half way through from boredom.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.
