The Nanny

Gilly Macmillan

Jocelyn loves her nanny more than her own mother - until the night that the nanny disappears. Jo is seven years old when it happens and never gets over the loss. Now, thirty years later, Jo is returning to her family home with her daughter in tow - just as human remains are pulled out of the house's lake. Then there's a knock on the door. And a woman claiming to be her nanny stands outside. Is she who she says she is? Can she be trusted? And what really happened on that fateful night all those years ago? Sometimes the truth hurts so much you'd rather hear the lie.


This devastating psychological thriller centre on the mysterious disappearance of a nanny beloved by her seven-year-old charge. Jocelyn never gets over it and blames her mother. Thirty years later Jocelyn returns to her hated mother’s house, now a young widow with her own daughter. The child finds a human skull in the garden; then there’s a shock knock at the door. Menacing and full of tension.
