In this fictional account of a historic event, the story of the Lindbergh baby's 1932 kidnapping is told from the nanny's point of view. Narrator Penelope Rawlins employs a lovely Scottish accent for nanny Betty Gow, who has been careful to hide her checkered past from her celebrity employers. Rawlins portrays Betty's terrible guilt after the kidnapping--but is her remorse for negligence or for criminal activity? Rawlins richly delivers the secondary characters, including the Norwegian boyfriend, the English caretakers, and even the overbearing and impulsive father, Charles. Throughout, listeners will wonder who was responsible for little Charlie's disappearance. Though it's a sad tale of the loss of a beloved child, listeners will enjoy being immersed in 1930s Americana, as well as the compelling mystery.
