Camille is the daughter of the cook at Rousseau Manor.  Her father had been the groundskeeper until he passed away a few years before.  Now Camille's mother is trying to teach her to cook even though Camille is not that good at it.  Although she is in service at the manor, the Rousseaus treat her well and she sometimes forgets that she is the help.  When the family learns that a young relative from the States will be coming to live with them, Camille does her best to prepare for the arrival.  But she will find that there are secrets in the Manor.
