Book Review: Mail Order Nanny: Charlotte's Dream by Jean L Kuhnke

Mail Order Nanny

Mail Order Nanny: Charlotte's Dream




From Amazon:


Charlotte's childhood dream of one day becoming a wife and mother was dashed when her own mother spilled hot grease across her face when she was twelve, To avoid ridicule and stares her father helped her train as a gourmet chef learning from the French and Italian chefs he hired. She eventually worked for a wealthy family as their head chef. When she slapped the face of her employers son because of inappropriate advances she was immediately terminated. The only job she could find after six months of searching was for a general housekeeper, nanny and cook in Montana. She could pretend to be the mother she knew she would never be.


My Thoughts:


Mail Order Nanny: Charlotte's Dream, spoke to my heart and kept me reading to find out how this young girl overcame her obstacles in her life. 

Charlotte had a strong will to want to make a name for herself as a great chef.   At the same time after listening to her Mother all those years telling her how bad she looked, she was cautious about people seeing her face.  Charlotte was very troubled, but yet willing to find a way to overcome. For this reason she remained my favorite character.  

Jean L. Kuhnke's descriptive way of writing makes you feel as though you are right there.   The descriptions of the hardship put on Charlotte made me feel her pain, I felt the love her Father had for her, I grew to have a lot of respect for her employer, and I felt like I made that train ride to Montana with her.  

A great read!
