Marguerite Demers is twenty-four when she leaves Paris for the sleepy southern village of Saint-Sulpice, to take up a job as a live-in nurse. Her charge is Jerome Lanvier, once one of the most powerful men in the village, and now dying alone in his large and secluded house, surrounded by rambling gardens. Manipulative and tyrannical,Jerome has scared away all his previous nurses. It is not long until the locals have formed their own opinions about Marguerite and her motives, what unfolds is a beautifully written story of compassion,
prejudice, freedom and death..
