This is a pleasant easy read book, that takes a slow walk through the life of a Norland Nanny. I found it a little dull and repetitive in places, but it did contain some nice recipes, including instructions on how to make your own butter! I doubt if I will read it again, but it did give an insight into what it meant to be a private Nanny.
I bought this book because I had read Brenda Ashford's first book (A Spoonful of Sugar). Although I did enjoy it I much preferred her earlier book. I found this one went over old ground; but I suppose if you hadn't read the first one that might not have been so annoying.
Preferred Brenda's first book, but this one's still enjoyable in many places. Her values and dedication are worthy of high praise but just felt this fact was a bit over-egged with all the glowing customer references put into the main read.
This was a very interesting book - different to what I was expecting but very enjoyable. It gave a good insight into the way the Norland Nurses were trained and really made you wish that the standards they upheld could be the same today.
Enjoyable read, I read her first book about her early year, memories of a time long gone but how we enjoyed the freedom children don't get now. Love and kindness never fail as her devotion to her young charges shows.
