THE HOUSE­KEEPER

Athleisure - - Frontpage - Suellen Dainty Si­mon and Schus­ter

When Anne Mor­gan's suc­cess­ful boyfriend - who's also her boss - leaves her for another woman, Anne finds her­self in need of a new job and a place to re­cover. Mean­while, her celebrity idol, Emma Helm­s­ley (Eng­land’s an­swer to Martha Ste­wart), is in need of a house­keeper, an op­por­tu­nity which seems too good to be true.

Through her books, web­site, and blog, Emma Helm­s­ley ad­vises her de­voted fol­low­ers on how to live a bal­anced life in a hec­tic world. Her hus­band, Rob, is a high pro­file aca­demic, and her chil­dren, Jake and Lily, are well-ad­justed teenagers. On the sur­face, they are the per­fect fam­ily. But Anne soon finds her­self in­ti­mately en­sconced in the Helm­s­ley’s dirty laun­dry, lit­er­ally and fig­u­ra­tively. The House­keeper shows that un­der­neath the dust, grime, and whim­si­cal clut­ter, every­one has a se­cret to hide and Anne’s own dis­turb­ing past threat­ens to un­hinge ev­ery­thing.
