The Girls of Ennismore by Patricia Falvey. Published by Kensington 

It’s 1900 and Rosie Killeen is leaving get family farm in County Mayo, Ireland to become a servant in the country estate of Lord and Lady Ennis. Not even nine years old, Rosie is soon caught up in household preparations for a visit from Queen Victoria. Rosie, who is roughly the same age as Lord and Lady Ennis’s daughter, Victoria, is soon charged with entertaining the lonely little rich girl. She begins talking lessons with Victoria and the two girls become fast friends. But not everyone is happy with the arrangement, and as the girls grow older and Rosie grows close to Victoria’s brother Valentine, her place in the household and in the world is tested. I really enjoyed this book and was couldn’t help but compare it to A Woman of Substance
