Publisher's Summary

In early 20th-century Vienna, Annika is raised by Ellie and Sigrid, a cook and housemaid for a household of three professors. Abandoned when she was a baby, Annika dreams of the day her mother will come back to claim her.

Then one day, it happens. A glamorous woman arrives and sweeps Annika away to a crumbling castle in Germany. But there is much more to this new woman than meets the eye - and none of it is good.

    "blah!!!"

    Don't be fooled by the mysterious description. This book is a flop. With a plot line as weak and terrible as cottage cheese coupled by the worst reader possible, I'm amazed this even got published

    "sweet and light"

    This was a lovely story. I hadn't realised it would be aimed at younger listeners as I've only ready Eva Ibbotson's books with adult characters, but even so I enjoyed it. The plot developments were easy enough to spot, but the pleasure was in the characters and the narrative.
