Description

A wonderfully provocative and appealing novel tells the story of two women whose lives entwine and unfold behind the glittery surface of Hollywood. In a novel at turns satirical and heartbreaking, where mothers' modern ideas are given practical overhauls by nannies, we meet Lola's vast network of fellow caregivers, each with her own story to tell.
