When her current childcare person leaves her in the lurch, she asks her British-born husband to beg his sister in London for the name of a good British nanny. Annabel Quick arrives on the scene, fitting Hopes specifications only insofar as she is British. Annabel is 15 years older than Hope, unmarried, broken-hearted, and has lived with her mother all of her adult life. She has come to America, and to this job, to escape. And since Hope cant afford to be picky, Annabel gets the job.As the summer unfolds, and marriages and old feelings are tested, Annabel becomes more a part of the family than she bargained for. And she and Hope each discover the surprises of romance in this exceptionally entertaining, emotionally staggering, and positively original novel from a first-class writer.
