Author signing: Sarah Pleydell w/ opening acoustic set feat. Gigi Dover
London, 1960: Renate von Hasselmann, a nineteen-year-old German au pair, arrives at Victoria Station prepared to meet her new charges, Caroline and Maggie Whitaker. Yet she is ill-prepared for their parents: the mother, Helen, knows more about Nazi Germany than Renate does, and the father, Jack, disarms Renate with his quicksilver charm.
With delicate humor, Pleydell presents a portrait of a family on the cusp of great social change.
