Magic Flutes by Eva Ibbotson . Review

The story begins with a young English boy called Guy Farne who is in foster care , he has not had the best of luck with previous foster parents , but one woman saw something in him that no one else did and this was making of him . 
From rags to riches this man rose in society and made his foster mother very proud. 
The story is also about a very privileged young woman called Tessa who lives in Austria , she is helping backstage in an opera house/ theatre where she is at her happiest working surrounded by the glamour and talent of this artistic set as well as all those less glamourous , more colourfully spoken people doing the hard graft to get all the behind scenes  work done, but if anyone knew who she really was it would be severely frowned upon . 
These two people meet unexpectently ,  both from very different backgrounds , and are intrigued by each other despite everything going against them. 
A charming story told in two very different parts of the world about two very different upbringings and families . I really enjoyed this tale as will any fan of Downton Abbey and similar programs. 

I received this book for review from The lovely people over at
