Description

Eva Ibbotson's charming and warm-hearted tale, A Secret Countess was originally published as A Countess Below Stairs.

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 Armed with an out-of-date book on housekeeping, Anna determines to become a housemaid and she finds work at the Earl of Westerholme's crumbling but magnificent mansion.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 . . .

Amazing

I have read this book five times over and absolutely loved the story line and the characters. After all these times i have never found myself finding the text monotonous or simply boring, from the first chapter the whole plot is clear. I would recommend this book to anyone as i think it suites most tastes. It is definitely worth reading and exceedingly memorable.

great

it's a great cute read with a happy fairytale ending that will make you smile.

The Secret Countess

Wow! I have just finished this book and was astounded by the brilliant plot and intriguing characters! I recommend this book highly to any age from 9+. I really found myself attached to each of the characters but hated Muriel Hardwicke!!
