When revolution tears Russia apart, Anna abandons her identity and homeland for a safe haven in England. She finds shelter there, working as a servant in an aristocratic household, her luxurious past now just a distant memory. Until she falls in love with the young Earl of Westerholme – and risks revealing her secret.
Thank you to lovereading for sending me this book, this is the second book of Eva Ibbotson’s I have read and enjoyed. The new covers I find are truly magical, especially this one. This story is set in 1919, and concentrates on Anna’s story who I absolutely loved, she is a real gem and such a lovely human being. There are some other very colourful characters from the aristocratic party guests to the other servants who work alongside Anna. A truly magical tale.
