A grand and sweeping adventure set in 19th century Austria, from best-loved author Eva Ibbotson. In the romantic city of Vienna, twelve-year-old foundling Annika lives contentedly, learning the art of pastry-making under the affectionate eyes of the two servant-women who fostered her as a baby. But when she suddenly inherits a trunk of costume jewellery, the mysterious and majestic Edeltraut von Tannenberg appears. Claiming to be Annika’s aristocratic mother, she takes her away to live in a strangely decrepit rural mansion. At first, Annika is enthralled by the sophisticated stranger. But it’s not long before she finds herself embroiled in a morass of secrets, rife with danger…
