Historical Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Elise Landau’s lovely life in Vienna is about to come to an end; it is 1938, and being Jewish in Austria is becoming increasingly difficult. As a safety measure, the Landaus send Elise to England to become a parlor maid in a great, glittering house by the sea inhabited by a sympathetic master and his dashing son. Justine Eyre beautifully narrates this story of romance and loss, switching seemingly effortlessly between British and Austrian accents. Although the plot is often predictable, the story is charming, and Eyre’s narration makes it even more so, particularly as she gives voice with such verve to Elise’s feelings of love, struggles with identity, and grief.
