Fiction • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Narrator Alison Larkin gives an unparalleled performance in this fascinating story of a nanny who is caught up in the lives of her rich British employers and their overindulged children in the meltdown years of the 1980s, when savings and loan scandals took down financial giants. Larkin has a seemingly unlimited supply of distinct voices, perfectly selected accents, and tremendous acting skill. Her delivery of witty dialogue, interesting historical facts, tarnished and greedy or simply clueless but endearing characters, and clever writing is irresistible. The result is an audio experience that both fascinates and repulses--but cannot be put down. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
