This story is very cute ☺

I love how Lily's so level-headed and kind. She's not afraid of people with high amounts of mana which makes her pretty different from other people in the story.

I also like watching her and Leonard dote on Jill, they really feel like a family so it's very heartwarming. I'm looking forward to seeing Lily and Leonard's relationship change from master and servant, into something like..... A COUPLE ?

I'm drowning in fluff! From start to the latest chapter, it was killing me just how much sweetness can drip from this story.

I LOVE Lily! She's a no nonsense and not easily bullied person. Her venting about the Crown Prince is among my favorite part!

Leonard-sama is so CUTE! Also coz he likes hugging. Little Jill is like the luckiest girl ever to have such cool parents! I'm hoping to hear about her magic soon.

This series is the kind you read if you need something uplifting and light to get through... more>> the day. A complete joy.

Thanks translator for keeping it up despite the many challenges IRL. <<less

It's another reincarnation story wherein a girl gets reborn into a maid. She's a bit forceful but I can say this is my type of novel. Fluffy, slice of life, kind MCs. And a cute kid! No MCs that kill this and that out of boredom or whatever. I'm looking forward to the romance between Leonard and Lily! Hopefully the translation has a regular schedule.

Magic, cooking, and fluff! There is a manga version out there which is also being translated. I don't know if From Maid to Mother was a manga or a novel originally, but it is just as good in either format. The novel has some extra details in it while the manga has pictures. I'll probably read both and root for Lily + Leonard.

As for the plot, it is more than just childcare and cooking. There have been no illogical plotlines and it is not as cliché heavy as some other... more>> novels in the fluff genre. <<less

A very fluffy and cute story that makes my soul feel healed. Lily is very kind and protective, and a lovely female lead. Jill is the cutest and Leonard is kind despite his oblivious nature.

Absolutely cute story which is heartwarming to boot!

The interactions between the MC and Jill is just too sweet! I do hope for progression with Leonard though, but there is enough fluffiness in this novel to feel the cuteness being emitted into the air. Lily (MC) is a level-headed girl who takes care of Jill without complaining, she may have reincarnated but that doesn't affect her ability to think straight and not jump into things feet first.

It’s pretty cute. Sad it’s not updated more recently (last was in 2020) and that I can’t seem to find the LN anywhere but here - think Amazon sells the manga but I’m not interested in that.
