Kate Clanchy is a writer, privileged and sheltered, Antigona is a refugee from Kosovo. On instinct, Kate offers Antigona a job as a nanny, and Antigona, equally shrewdly, accepts. Over the next five years and a thousand cups of coffee Antigona's extraordinary story slowly emerges. This book is the product of that friendship.

An informative and enlightening portrayal of a refugee family in their home setting, Albania/Malesi and their often bewildering experiences in the U.K. We are glad Kate C. kept her notes and put this true story into a non-fiction narrative that is very readable. ****
