Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Countess (Paperback)
Once again a great book by Eva Ibbotson. Buyers beware this is the same book as 'A Countess Under Stairs' and if you buy the special offer of these two books together, you are buying 2 copies of the same book!!I guess you could give one away to a friend like I did!
However, if you love old fashion romance of the type that you can't put down than buy this (or 'A Countess Under Stairs'!!) I am looking forward to reading the other re issues of Ms Ibbotson's books

Hi, is this the same book I am thinking about? I read it years ago, and always had fond memories of the warmth of the story and the characters. The novel I have in mind concerns a Russian aristocrat forced to flee the country at the time of the Russian Revolution with her family. She then takes a job as a maid to earn enough to keep the family, and allow her younger brother (I thinK!) to maintain a place in society. Any feedback would be gratefully appreciated.

Isabel, you don't own a comment. Just because you wrote that they were the same book doesn't affect Anne Moore's right to write it on hers.

Why so aggressive, austen_megabux? Isabel never implied that she "owned" the comment; she was just pointing out in a friendly way that reading the reviews before purchasing can help you avoid buying the wrong thing.
