Death in the Family

He had the aspect of a man, who had welcomed death, albeit he had found it among the gravy, and this helped me bear the awful, wrenching pain I felt at his loss.Oh, Euphemia, if only your fatherThere was really nothing he could do about it, I countered fairly.In December 1909 the Very Rev Joshia Martins expires in a dish of mutton and onions leaving his family on the brink of destitution. Abandoned by her noble grandfather, Joshias daughter, the eighteen year old Euphemia, takes it on herself to provide for her mother and little brother by entering service. Shes young, fit, intelligent, a little naive and assumes the life of a maid wont be too demanding. However, on her first day at the unhappy home of Lord Stapleford she discovers a murdered body.Euphemias innate sense of justice has her prying where no servant should look and uncovering some of the darker social, political and business secrets of Stapleford family. She is propositioned, locked in cupboards, made to chop mountains of onions, her reputation shredded, accused of murder and frequently put in fear for her life. All Euphemia has to defend herself is her quick wits, sense of humour and the ultimate weapon of all virtuous young women, her scream.
