She has worked for a hundred and twenty-six families and looked after a hundred and thirty-one babies, one set of clients easily replaced by the next.
But the hundred and thirty-second baby and his mother Chanel prompts a crisis in Auntie Mei's life - a tremor that threatens to destroy her resolute detachment.
