Why read it?

1 author picked The Caretakers as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Paris is a dream for many people, but the reality is quite different, especially when seen through the lens of a nanny cam. Though the book takes place in Paris, the ups and downs of navigating work and family relationships are universal.

From Janet's list on ups and downs in Paris: C'est La Vie.
