About this book
A nostalgic memoir of a nanny in the 1940s, a real-life Mary Poppins who is now 91 years old. Ashford spent 62 years working as a Norland Nanny, beginning training in 1939 at the age of 18, shortly before WWII. She worked for poverty-stricken evacuees from the East End of London, as well as in the nurseries of smart Kensington homes.
A nanny's story of hardship, love and happiness in wartime England.
