5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful historical romance, 11 Sep 2012
By 
This review is from: The Secret Countess (Paperback)
This book was originally published as A Countess Below Stairs in 1981. But I didn't realise this book was written 30 years ago when I read it! It's set in 1919 and transports you back to this wonderful but hard time. I absolutley fell in love with Anna! She is everything a human being should be and is almost too nice to be true, but Eva Ibbotson makes her believable. As the reader I was 100% behind her and rooting for her all the way through. The other characters are vast and colourful. From Anna's fellow servants to the aristocratic party guests! I loved the honorable Olive and Muriel is one of those characters you love to hate. In fact some of the things she does are so unforgiveably cruel that I almost punched the book!
