Author(s): Stephanie Land
Giving this any sort of bad review almost seems like it would be an act of spite, given the circumstances Stephanie Land is writing from – but still, for the first third of the book I really wasn’t liking it, and I couldn’t put my finger on why.
But at about the halfway point, I realized I had been bait-and-switched – this is not a story of a "maid." It’s the story of a working, poor, single mother, dealing with a variety of problems both self-inflicted and beyond her control who *happens* to be a maid. But that’s a harder elevator pitch so I understood why "maid" became the focus. But I don’t think that’s really the book.
When I changed my focus to the book I realized it actually was I appreciated it a lot more. At that point, I could look at this as a window to this life. Yes, Stephanie Land is often self-pitying and finds confrontation and judgement around every corner – but of course she would. Her relations with her daughter’s father is not good, and she’s unable to find a really solid boyfriend, because of course she can’t. She wishes for a better life and probably misprioritizes things in the moment instead of thinking long-term, because of course she would.
