The Door - Madga Szabo

Staff Pick

She won’t wash just anyone’s dirty linen. When Magda hires Emerence as a housekeeper she is put on notice. Emerence is of peasant stock—immaculate, tireless, strong as an ox. Magda is a writer married to an academic and dedicated to the life of the mind. The fierce loyalty that grows between them is matched only by their deep incompatibility. You have never met a character like Emerence in your life, and I promise you’ll never forget her.
