Manhattan’s wealthy Upper East Side has its own rigid code of behaviour. One strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family.
Emotional displays – unacceptable.
Unruly behaviour – definitely not welcome.
Fun – no thanks.
So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric primary school teacher from England, bounces into this fortress of restraint with a heart as big as the city, the family quickly discovers that she hasn’t read the rule book. And after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying . . . YES?.
When I started reading it I was enjoying it (think modern version of Mary Poppins) but then halfway through a shift changed and it got terrible and then got uncomfortable reading it and that I wasn’t going to continue (I did though as I always finish a book!).
The plot line I could see kind of where it wanted to go (bringing light to the home/changing the house for the better) but it was very unbelievable and wrong in many ways (don’t want to spoil it so if you want spoilers then look at other reviews on Amazon/goodreads for what I mean).
Don’t think I will recommend this book. Was disappointing.
