#bookofthemonth : The Au Pair by Rous Emma

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

I was very excited to read this book – it got great reviews and I had multiple friends recommended it to me. While this novel was captivating but it felt like forever for the story to really take off, but with so many secrets and lies to uncover I followed it all the way to the end.  

"Seraphine Mayes and her twin brother Danny were born in the middle of summer at their family's estate on the Norfolk coast. Within hours of their birth, their mother threw herself from the cliffs, the au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of dark cloaks, changelings, and the aloof couple who drew a young nanny into their inner circle. Now an adult, and mourning the recent death of her father, Seraphine begins to go through his belongings, when she uncovers a family photograph that raises dangerous questions. It was taken on the day the twins were born, and in the photo, their mother, surrounded by her husband and her young son, is beautifully dressed, smiling serenely, and holding just one baby. Who is the child and what really happened that day? Someone knows the truth, if only Seraphine can find her. The Au Pair"
