I loved this book- all of Eva's books are so amazing- she has this brilliant way of making a historical fiction book almost a fantasy but not.... amazing!

@ happycanada this is my fav Eva Ibbotson book 2. BTW I am following u. I love this book even though it is actually one of her books in this genre type that hasn't won an award. In my opinion it is actually better then the star of kavan which was boring in comparison.
