Product Description

By the award-winning and bestselling author of Journey to the River Sea, a novel that sings with characteristic Ibbotson warmth and wit.

Anna, a young countess, has lived in the glittering city of St Petersburg all her life in an ice-blue palace overlooking the River Neva. But when revolution tears Russia apart, her now-penniless family is forced to flee to England. Armed with an out-of-date book on housekeeping, Anna determines to become a housemaid and she finds work at the Earl of Westerholme's crumbling but magnificent mansion. The staff and the family are sure there is something not quite right about their new maid  but she soon wins them over with her warmth and dedication.

Then the young Earl returns home from the war  and Anna falls hopelessly in love. But they can never be together: Rupert is engaged to the snobbish and awful Muriel  and anyway, Anna is only a servant. Or so everybody thinks...
