When 18-year-old Ellen accepts the post of housekeeper at Hallendorf School of Music, Drama and Dance she wasn't expecting it to be quite so unusual. For deep in the beautiful Austrian countryside, she finds an eccentrically magical world occupied by wild children and even wilder teachers, experimental dancers, and a tortoise on wheels. Ellen is particularly intrigued by the enigmatic, and very handsome, Marek, part-time gardener and fencing teacher.

Life in Hallendorf seems idyllic, but outside Hitler's Reich is already casting its menacing shadow over Europe. Through her growing friendship with Marek, Ellen begins to encounter the dreadful reality of a world on the brink of war. And by the time she has figured out Marek's true identity and his dangerous mission, she is completely in love with him - and equally sure that her love will never be requited.

    " This was okay, but I ended feeling like I had to finish it just because I started it. "

    " Having now read two of Ibbotson's teen romances, I am beginning to see a trend. Both have featured angelic young women who coo over babies and frolic in meadows and have no personality whatsoever. These young women fall in love with great guys: tough, handsome, intelligent, whom they barely know. Lovely. "

    " I still like A Countess Below Stairs the best of Ibbotson's books, but this was a fun one. The secondary plot about WWII, Nazis, internment camps, etc. really elevated this to 5 stars for me. "
