Synopsis

‘A fairy tale for grown-ups. It’s unapologetically romantic but it’s also extremely funny, wry, dry and witty – and hugely uplifting.’ – Marian Keyes

As WWI draws to a close, a love affair that stretches across countries, families and class begins, in master storyteller Eva Ibbotson’s classic historical romance The Secret Countess, with an introduction from Amanda Craig. Anna Grazinsky, a young Russian 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 Armed with an out-of-date book on housekeeping, Anna determines to help her family in any way possible, and she is soon hired as a housemaid at the Earl of Westerholme’s crumbling but magnificent mansion. Then Rupert, the young Earl, returns home from the war and is fascinated by his new housemaid, and the more time they spend together the more they feel inexplicably drawn together.

But they can never be together; Rupert is already engaged and Anna is only a servant . . .
