The House at Tyneford

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Fans of Kate Morton's The Forgotten Garden and TV's Downton Abbey will love this sweeping New York Times bestselling historical novel of love and loss. 
The start of an affair, the end of an era.
It's the spring of 1938 and no longer safe to be a Jew in Vienna. Nineteen-year-old Elise Landau is forced to leave her glittering life of parties and champagne to become a parlor maid in England. She arrives at Tyneford, the great house on the bay, where servants polish silver and serve drinks on the lawn. But war is coming, and the world is changing. When the master of Tyneford's young son, Kit, returns home, he and Elise strike up an unlikely friendship that will transform Tyneford—and Elise—forever.

Loved it!

Sat down and read this whole book it two settings! Just splendid. I wanted 'part 2'


Much too sad for my taste. Great story, well-written, but heart-breaking.

The House at Tyneford

I really enjoyed this story. Told from the the perspective of a Jewish teenager as she matures into adulthood far away from her Viennese privileged background. A domestic refugee working in a upper class English household. She goes from Mozart to dust mops. She learns life lessons, about work, first love, pride in her accomplishments, love for her new homeland, loss, and acceptance. A very good read.
