The Morning Gift by Eva Ibbotson . Review

Part historical fiction , part romance , this is the story about a young woman called Ruth at the time of the Nazi invasion into Vienna which is her home .  The story is set in Vienna and England and the main character Ruth has  been left in Vienna without her family in her home country as her family goes to England to flee the Nazi's as they fear for their life being Jewish. Her knight in shining armour appears in the form of a man called Quin who says he can get her to her family safely but it is not without many complications !
I enjoyed this book , Eva is a beautiful writer who can capture a city so well and make you feel like you are really there and you feel real empathy for her characters and their situations . A delightful book. 

I received this book from the lovely people over at
