In her fifteenth summer, Teresa is her town's most sought-after babysitter--cheerful, poised, an effortless storyteller, a wonder with children and animals--but also a solitary soul already attuned to the paradoxes and compromises of adult life.

The New York Times Book Review

There is...something Jamesian about McDermott's style: this novel's craftsmanship and its moral intelligence are as one.
