Book cover

Eldon the head Butler for an aristocratic family the Tennants. When he dies, Raunce, the head footman is promoted due to war-induced labor scarcity. The other Tennant servants of the house are surprised by this promotion, and Edith, a new hire, develops feelings for Raunce. When the Tennants leave for England, Raunce is left in charge of the house, but finds conflict in the pursuit of Edith.
