A butler takes a trip through England and reminisces about his work and unrealised love at Darlington Hall. He also tries to ascertain what makes a good butler and what dignity and loyalty means. A book about loss, regret, and fullfilling with fascism as a backdrop.
In the summer of 1956, Stevens, a long-serving butler at Darlington Hall, decides to take a motoring trip through the West Country. The six-day excursion becomes a journey into the past of Stevens and England, a past that takes in fascism, two world wars, and an unrealised love between the butler and his housekeeper.
