I really enjoyed it! I thought it was extremely well written on a sensitive subject. The characters were brought to life and you could feel the emotions tugging at your insides as you read the book. I think as a mother too, it made it even more emotional because the way one of the characters treated her daughter was just too heartbreaking and could see the emotional effect it would later have on her.
One thing which I have always found peculiar with racism and nanny’s is that, it was/is perfectly fine for ladies of colour to feed, clothe and look after your child without passing on any ‘disease’ but share a toilet and hell couldn’t be worse. I have never understood it and probably never will.
I think this was a book that needed to be written and I am glad that I have read it.
