A perverse little fairytale about three governesses tending to a couple's young boys in the French countryside. To the country manor's inhabitants, the women are irresistible and unknowable. They frolic, gossip, cry a good deal, and devour men from time to time. Though the action is sparse, this slim book contains more feeling, wit, and ideas than a book three times its size. These governesses possess an irreverent magic. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor
