about this item

Living in Vienna in 1938, as anti-Semitic sentiment builds, is no longer safe for 19-year-old Elise Landau. She is sent to live in England, where she finds work as a parlor maid at Tyneford, a stately manor house. Pining for her life of glittering parties and nights at the opera, she learns to polish and scrub well enough to escape the wrath of the housekeeper, Mrs. Ellsworth, and the scorn of the butler, Mr. Wrexham. She ultimately catches the eye of Tyneford's heir, Kit, and as war looms, an unlikely romance develops between them. THE HOUSE AT TYNEFORD, which is based on the life of the author's great-aunt, traces Elise's development from spoiled girl to independent and resilient young woman in a way that rings especially true.
