I have no idea where I got this book from. I just know that I didn't buy it new. It is a hardback in good condition.
From the cover:- "After 62 years of being a nanny, I lost count of the number of children I've cared for, but it must be approaching 100. How many women can say that?"

REVIEW:-"I loved this book which was very well-written and at times quite emotional. At one time I was planning to train as a nanny/children's nurse myself but this didn't happen. The author's great love of children shone through and I felt sad that she didn't ever have any of her own. Her experiences during the second World War were extremely interesting and I was quite surprised at how gruelling her training was even though she became a Norland nanny, one of the "poshest" and most sought after at the time. I shall be on the lookout for the follow up book now."
Reserved for another bookcrosser.

This book will be sent to another bookcrosser. I hope they enjoy it as much as I did.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Journal Entry 5 by Andrea99 at Brighton & Hove, East Sussex United Kingdom on Thursday, January 20, 2022
This is a very well written biographical account of the authors experience as a Norland Nanny through the second world war - with experiences of posh upper class homes in London as well as east end evacuees in the country during the Blitz. Enjoyable read!
As with the previous reader, it would be interesting to read the follow-up book to this one!
