Araminta Hall: Everything and Nothing (Paperback)

Araminta Hall with my bookshelves in the background
Just finished reading this by Araminta Hall in paperback. It's the sort of emotional journey I would associate reading about by the likes of Anita Shreve, Diane Chamberlain or Jodi Picoult, about a family that employs an unsuitable nanny.

Although some elements of the story might be predictable, all scenes in the book were relevant and therefore it engaged my interest to a reasonable extent throughout. The writing style also managed to conjure some interesting imagery. 

The end of the book was actually quite sad, as the nanny meets her arguably undeserved fate...

Overall I would call it an average and enjoyable read.
