Jessie loses her job in a hospital and moves to Devon to become the nursemaid to the Kendle family. She falls in love with the children quickly and also the Nanny and the elderly mother. She isn’t so keen on the children’s mother wh0 is extremely offhand with everyone.
I quickly got drawn into this book and loved the setting and the house and staff. It makes you realise how tough life in service was.
Jessie is keen to get Captain Kendle more involved with his children and this has unexpected consequences. She’s a feisty character who seems to rebel against the constraints you would expect.
I loved the characters and I really like Rosie’s writing style. I enjoyed her previous books .
I voluntarily read a copy of this book with thanks to NetGalley.
