A book about dignity, loyalty, love, and regret, told through the eyes of an English butler. One of those books that stays with you a while after you read it. The climax of the book is quite sad, although the very end is somewhat optimistic.

But that doesn’t mean to say, of course, there aren’t occasions now and then - extremely desolate occasions - when you think to yourself: “What a terrible mistake I’ve made with my life.” And you get to thinking about a different life, a better life you might have had… And I suppose that’s when I get angry over some trivial little thing… But… there’s no turning back the clock now. One can’t be forever dwelling on what might have been. One should realize one has as good as most, perhaps better, and be grateful.
