When the most famous toddler in America, Charles Lindbergh, Jr., is kidnapped from his family home in New Jersey in 1932, the case makes international headlines. Already celebrated for his flight across the Atlantic, his father, Charles, Sr., is the country’s golden boy, with his wealthy, lovely wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, by his side. But there’s someone else in their household—Betty Gow, a formerly obscure young woman, now known around the world by another name: the Lindbergh Nanny. A Scottish immigrant deciphering the rules of her new homeland and its East Coast elite, Betty finds Colonel Lindbergh eccentric and often odd, Mrs. Lindbergh kind yet nervous, and Charlie simply a darling. Far from home and bruised from a love affair gone horribly wrong, Betty finds comfort in caring for the child and warms to the attentions of handsome sailor Henrik, sometimes known as Red. Then, Charlie disappears. Suddenly a suspect in the eyes of both the media and the public, Betty must find the truth about what really happened that night in order to clear her own name—and to find justice for the child she loves.

A fascinating story with wonderful characters. The narrator had an amazing amount of different accents to deal with and the men’s voices were odd, but she did well with all of the differences.

Very interesting and captivating portrayal if the Lindbergh tragedy. The character development was well done. I had a hard time with the narration the accents were a but thick though I didn't have trouble differentiating between people I had to rewind alot so I could understand what they were saying. I liked the authors sharing some of the facts vs fiction at the end. Overall a good listen
