Not Ibbotson's Best, 24 Feb. 2012
I have read a couple of Eva Ibbotson's books, including 'A Company of Swans', 'The Star of Kazan' and 'The Morning Gift'. I thoroughly enjoyed them all. But this was a bit of a let-down. I read the first part, and it didn't draw me in, like Ibbotson's other works. I was a little disappointed, but ploughed through it nonetheless. But it didn't really pick up. So, although I do love Eva Ibbotson, this book dissatisfied me.
