9781481145565: Nanny on the Run

Desperate to avoid her ex-boyfriend in the summer of 1977, eighteen-year-old Bridget Reimel leaves her Butte, Montana home for a nanny job in New York City. Instead of the respite she seeks, Bridget encounters unexpected challenges. New York City is scorching hot. Blackout ‘77 bathes the area in darkness. And serial killer Son of Sam targets young girls with long, dark hair—girls like Bridget Reimel—and couples locked in the kind of passionate embraces Bridget is running away from. When battles over interactions with the Thorsen children escalate into a fiery confrontation with Mrs. Thorsen, an older nanny offers Bridget a way out. Bridget escapes the Thorsens' home the following morning, future uncertain, to the home of a man she’s never met. Nanny on the Run is a story of roots, wings, and unspoken goodbyes.
