“5.0 out of 5 stars Escaping control Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 4, 2020 Verified Purchase This novel has great energy, it moves at a swift pace and draws the reader in.The author creates the claustrophobic locked down atmosphere inside George’s mansion with great skill. The tension rises when Nanny decides she has had enough and is going to locate the key to the marital bedroom. Once she decides to fight the control imposed by George, his hold on the household starts to weaken.This novel intrigues, the situation is bizarre yet so believable. I think this is due to the author’s ability to keep the writing crisp and focused on the three principal characters, Rosa, Nanny , and George. Rosa’s emergence outdoors and her introduction to the natural world is beautifully described. This novel deserves a sequel to follow through on the new life ahead for Rosa and Nanny.”
Would you keep a secret that might ruin your life to protect another? Nanny does for Rosa.

A thin line between love and obsession. Rosalind’s father crosses that line. A big house, full of passion and secrets. The silence of shadows deafening. Over-protection is detrimental. Rosalind is loved greatly by her father and Nanny. Rosalind always tries to please and placate him. Who is the lady that appears only to Rosa? Can a father love too much?
