The Secret Countess by Eva Ibbotson . Review

When I first saw the new edition of this book I fell in love with the pretty cover instantly and as I began reading it , it just got better!
The story is about Anna , a girl from very noble stock in Russia who has to move to England after tragedy befalls her family. Making the journey to England with a large helpful book full of tips and many hopes and dreams this young lady is set to work in a very fine house where she will be a maid. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey then you will like the comradery between the below stairs staff  in the book and the complications of the lives of those who live upstairs . As Anna has more nobility in her then they realise even her uniform cannot hide her breeding that shines through in her manners and beauty. 
This was a feel good story , Anna is a gorgeous character to read about in every way but there has to be a horrible character in every story and this one has that too creating tension and unease. I even stayed up late to finish this as I wanted to see if there would be a happy ending . Gorgeous book ! Go add this to your TBR list now.
