Her father had been in the wars with Napolean, and she and her mother followed him, first to Portugal and then to Southern France, where the de Cressacs hired her. They wanted an english nurse so Bernard would grow up speaking both French and English. Her skin was doughy, with large pores. She had a british accent and her voice was pitched unusually high.
