Product description

As a tiny baby, Annika was found in a pretty Alpine church by a cook and a housemaid. Since then she’s lived with them in the house of three eccentric Viennese professors. She loves her life in Vienna – a wondrous city of glittering spires, marzipan shops and music. All the same, Annika dreams of the day when her real mother will find her. Sure enough, one day a glamorous stranger arrives at the door. She is Annika’s mother: a German aristocrat who lives in a grand castle. Now Annika must say goodbye to Vienna, and start a new life as a lady. But if you’re expecting a rags-to-riches fairytale, you’re wrong…

  • A Smarties Silver Award winner by the late Eva Ibbotson
  • A moving and magical love letter to a bygone Vienna
  • Eva won the Smarties Gold for Journey to the River Sea
  • Her other books included The Secret of Platform 13
