It isn’t just Nanny who finds it difficult in France when Grace and her young son, Sigi, are finally able to join her dashing aristocratic husband, Charles-Edouard, after the war. For Grace is out of her depth among the fashionably dressed and immaculately coiffured French women, and shocked by their relentless gossiping and bed hopping. When she discovers her husband’s tendency to lust after every pretty girl he sees, it looks like trouble. And things get even more complicated when little Sigi steps in.
The Blessing is a hilarious tale of love, fidelity, and the English abroad.
