A quiet story of a young woman who flees to France and becomes a nanny to a family living in Paris. An interesting tale of her assimilating into the family and life in Paris, and of the choices back home that drove her to find solace in a foreign land. Her internal life has caused her to make several difficult choices, but in the end, she gives back to her adopted family much more than she has taken. Interesting, solid story, just not anything great.
