About this deal

However, Alexandra is a capable and resourceful young woman and, despite disapproval from almost everyone she meets, gradually gains the children’s trust. Although there were many aspects of this story I enjoyed, and it was certainly romantic, I felt it was perhaps suited to younger readers than myself. A gentle romance in more ways than one, the style of read that fans of Katie Fforde are used to reading. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Soon, however, she finds herself up against Antoine’s former mother-in-law, Grand-mère, who wants to move in and educate the children so they ‘do not grow up as savages’. Characters and places are beautifully depicted and I found the setting in the early 60s quite unusual and very interesting. We get to meet Alexandra's friend David, who comes to help her tutor the children, and he also happens to be homosexual, something frowned upon in England during the setting of this story. Alexandra is a sweet, kind girl, who means well and is blessed with seeing the positive in most things, which is an attribute you don’t see much of these days.I had to give it three stars as I didn't feel the plot was entirely original, a Chateau instead of a castle, a gay friend and fellow employee, dressing the house and having a traditional Christmas and skating on the lake and even relations concerned that they should inherit. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The novel is set in 1963 and I can certainly see the benefit of setting the novel in that time period before mobile phones etc.

With a get-on-with-it mindset, she throws off her pearls and stiff dresses and adopts a barefoot Provençial lifestyle.The only nannying experience she has had is that of her own nannies who brought her up after her parents died. Well, I say buddy read… *taps chin*This was your typical Hannah/Laura buddy read where the planned reading schedule goes to pot on the first night *snorts*. If you’ve read any previous book by Katie Fforde you’ll know she absolutely slays her characterizations, every single character in all of her books are believable, not perfect in any way, and absolutely so dang lovable. It was as if the Chateau and its inhabitants were just waiting for Alexandra’s arrival (and those who follow) to breathe new life back into it.
