Has anybody read "Maid" by Stephanie Land

Just finished reading the book, Maid. It is the story about a single mother struggling to survive as a house cleaner. Her struggles are interesting and heartfelt but I am not sure about her characterization of the cleaning industry and the customers as well. While we specialize in carpet cleaning, I think her comments reflect on the industry in whole. What do you think?

Never read it but I can tell you that in my opinion house cleaning is an honorable service. I know that my employees and I work hard and are proud of what we do. Even though we only clean windows and gutters, I cannot imagine anybody saying bad things about what we do. We work extremely hard and provide an amazing service.
