When her beloved nanny, Hannah, left without a trace in
the summer of 1988, seven-year-old Jocelyn Holt was
devastated. Haunted by the loss, Jo grew up bitter and
distant, and eventually left her parents and Lake Hall,
their faded aristocratic home, behind.
Thirty years later, Jo returns to the house and is forced
to confront her troubled relationship with her mother.
But when human remains are accidentally uncovered in a
lake on the estate, Jo begins to question everything she
thought she knew.
Then an unexpected visitor knocks on the door and Joâ€™s
world is destroyed again. Desperate to piece together the
gaping holes in her memory, Jo must uncover who her nanny
really was, why she left, and if she can trust her own
In this compulsively readable tale of secrets, lies, and
deception, Gilly Macmillan explores the darkest impulses
and desires of the human heart. Diabolically clever, The
Nanny reminds us that sometimes the truth hurts so much
youâ€™d rather hear the lie.
