On Tour: A Life In the Service by Roberta Pescow

Jenny accepts the fact that she was born into a domestic race for a life of domestic work. In return for this loyal service, the householders provide food, protection and shelter. Jenny's earthy spirituality and gentle nature allow her to be content with her lot, even when her situation is far from ideal. But during a terrifying fire, Jenny accidentally becomes separated from her master and mistress.

Out on the street with no identification, Jenny finds herself an unlikely fugitive with no protection from a dangerous world. The experience shakes her beliefs to the core and causes her to question everything she has ever known. Follow Jenny's adventures in strange world of inequality that is a lot closer to home than you think. This novelette is approximately 12,000 words in length.

This is a super quick read.  I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with this novelette but I can say that I was pleasantly surprised.  It wasn't at all what I was expecting.  I love when books can change my way of thinking and this one accomplishes that in a few short pages.  

It's hard to review such a short book, especially when you don't want to give everything away.  I will say this though.  This is a book worthy of the few minutes you will spend reading it.  Jenny's adventures really are a lot closer to home than you may realize.  And, at the end, you may just want to go back and read it again with new eyes.
