Secret Countess

«I'm so grateful to have discovered her as her books are utterly delightful. The Secret Countess is a fairy tale for grown-ups: after the Russian revolution, a penniless countess gets a job as a housemaid in a stately home in England. It's unapologetically romantic but it's also extremely funny, wry, dry and witty - and hugely uplifting. Her books are getting me through lockdown.»

«Recently during this pandemic, my friend recommended to me the adult novels of Eva Ibbotson as a solace and a joy, and I’m so glad she did. They are so full of goodness, generosity and romance! I loved The Secret Countess...there are some beautiful observations and there is a strong message underneath it, as in all of Ibbotson’s books – of welcoming people in, of caring for each other, of staying positive, of enjoying food and glamorous things, as well as nurturing the more abstract qualities that make humankind not irredeemable. Ibbotson herself was a refugee from Nazi-occupied Vienna, so she knew what she was talking about.»

Jessie Burton, Good Housekeeping

«A comfortingly old fashioned tale of hidden identity and love.»

«This year (thanks to a recommendation by Ella Risbridger on Instagram, of all places) I have binged on Eva Ibbotson, not her children’s books, but her elegantly written, witty and well-observed if (after a few) formulaic fables of emigrées with beautiful burnished hair fallen on hard times. I read one after another, and rather feel your Christmas might be brightened by doing the same. So may I suggest A Song for Summer, followed by The Morning Gift, then The Secret Countess, A Company of Swans, Magic Flutes, Journey to the River Sea, and The Star of Kazan.»

Nigella Lawson, The Sunday Times
