Searching for Mary Poppins by Susan Davis and Gina Hyams is a new book in which twenty-five bestselling and award-winning female writers explore the emotional minefield of mother-nanny relationships. For anyone who has been there, and on either side; it is easy to appreciate the scope of emotions (love, guilt, betrayal, gratitude, insecurity and loss) that can define these often intimate relationships.
