An unforgettable debut about a young woman's choice between the future she's always imagined and the people she's come to love.
Charlotte, a gifted and superbly trained young musician, has been blindsided by a shocking betrayal in her promising career when she takes a babysitting job with the McLeans, a glamorous Upper East Side Manhattan family. At first the nanny gig is just a way of tiding herself over until she has licked her wounds and figured out her next move as a composer in New York. But as it turns out, Charlotte is naturally good with children and becomes as deeply fond of the two little boys as they are of her.
When an unthinkable tragedy leaves the McLeans bereft, Charlotte is not the only one who realizes that she's the key to holding little George and Matty's world together. Suddenly, in addition to life's usual puzzles, such as sorting out which suitor is her best match, she finds herself with an impossible choice between her lifelong dreams and the torn-apart family she's come to love.
Caroline Angell's remarkable and generous debut is the story of a young woman's discovery of the things that matter most.

This is a story about grief and how people handle grief. Although there are many sad moments, it's also strangely uplifting with moments that make you smile and even laugh.
You'll absolutely fall in love with the heroine Charlotte as you follow your way watching her handle responsibilities no one in her position should be asked of, and also watching her figure out her own wants and needs.
This story jumps around time often, so keep that in mind if that's not your thing.
