Over a Hot Stove free pdf This delightful memoir provides a unique 'Upstairs, Downstairs' account of what life was really like in a bygone era. At the age of sixteen, Flo Wadlow left her family to begin what would become a distinguished life 'in service'.

By her early twenties, Flo was in charge of the kitchen and cooked for prime ministers and royalty.
