Publisher's Summary

Spring, 1922. Tessa is a beautiful, tiny, dark-eyed princess - who's given up her duties to follow her heart, working for nothing backstage at the Viennese opera. No one there knows who she really is, or that a fairytale castle is missing its princess, and Tessa is determined to keep it that way.

But secret lives can be complicated. When a wealthy, handsome Englishman discovers this bewitching urchin backstage, Tessa's two lives collide - and in escaping her inheritance, she finds her destiny.

©1982 Eva Ibbotson; (P)2009 Macmillan Digital Audio

    "Sweet, very special book!"

    It's a very sweet touching book. It's a shame is abridged. I am
    a hopeless romantic and really enjoyed it! Eva Ibbotson's writing is really magical!

    "Curate's egg"

    I love all the Eva Ibbotson books and can read them on a loop. Unfortunately I had to go for the abridged versions on Audible because the Kate Lock unabridged ones are impossible to listen to. (I returned mine - which means you can't review them...but other reviewers have said exactly what I think anyway.) This one is better; at least the voice is quite pleasant and the reading sympathetic. However, all the foreign phrases are so mispronounced as to be unintelligible (and she does absolutely the worst Geordie accent I've ever heard). A cringe. Don't the actors think to research this first? And isn't there an editor at Audible who can help when they mess up? Does nobody check? I don't think that is asking too much.
