Eva Ibbotson has a uniue gift for lovable characters evocative settings and intricate roller coaster plots I know the Professors I know Pauline and Stefan and I know Gudrun and Mathilde and I know la Rondine There are always a lot of characters in Eva Ibbotsons as there are in life yes and they always no matter how insignificant they are to the plot have a bit of backstory and a lot of personalityShe is brilliant at really painting a picture in the reader s mind I now have travel to Vienna on my bucket list it sounds like a little slice of Heaven and right up my street And I shivered at the description of Spittal I could see the glassy grey lake with Zed galloping across the landscape I could feel the coldness of the grey and gloomy weather in my bones as I readAnd the plot There is a little unnerving foreshadowing but I imagine that a first time reader particularly one of eleven or twelve would be absolutely blown away as the twists unravel and everything finally makes sense This is such a well crafted mystery and a very original idea The tension builds and right up until the ending there is an impending danger that all may be lost and because we have come to love these characters so dearly our beating heart feels as though it is at stake The ending is dramatic and extremely satisfying I recommend this to children as a properly written adventure and to adults as the same Nostalgic exciting and pure escapism I loved every page

A splendid orphan story and a good one for reinforcing the idea that we can make our own families I loved the turn of the century Vienna setting and there were just the right amount of fairyfolk tale touches Excellent for 10 13 year old girls but also for adults who like old fashioned stories Jim Trelease of the Read Aloud Handbook recommended this book to me about 7 years ago I have chosen it for my 11 year old Book Club this year and I m anxious to see how the girls enjoy itJanuary 2012I ve just reread this book for the above mentioned Book Club and I think that I like and admire it even better the second timeI really noticed how clever Ibbotson is with the details and once again I m struck by how she plays with and subverts the fairy tale plot and themes Her loving tribute to Vienna inspired me to start reading Stefan Zweig s The World of Yesterday One of the children in my Book Club said of the beginning of the book that Annika was really happy but she didn t know it That comment has really stayed with me How often is that the case That we don t recognize our golden times when we are living them
