Summary
Clara Kelley is not the experienced Irish maid hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, so Clara is pretending to be her -- if she can keep up the ruse. Carnegie's Maid tells the story of a brilliant woman who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie toward philanthropy
