Summary
"Matilda Housewright hails from a long line of venerable and well-respected African American retainers - her family has been in "service" for generation, serving Washington D.C., politicos and other upper-crust families. The daughter of the indispensable majordomo Jacob Housewright, Matilda grew up in the house of a powerful D.C. senator and learned how to be a hostess extraordinaire - and has perfected the art of service. But after her father dies and she starts a catering business with her brother, Matilda begins to question who she is and what, exactly, she's serving. As the story is told in the voices of the men in her life, with connecting interludes from Matilda, the reader indeed gets The Full Matilda, a glorious glimpse inside the life of a woman in the midst of change as she maneuvers through a web of secrets, expectations, and worn-out social mores."--Jacket
