7 out of 10

The author does a wonderful job of describing life in Salzburg, Austria in the early 1900s. The book is populated with a wide assortment of eccentric characters. I did get confused sometimes because I didn't instantly recollect the character being mentioned. Towards the end of the book, I was caught up in the many different stories occurring being wrapped up.

Note: This book has been sent off in a bookring.

8 out of 10

This book is described as a romance, that was what I was expecting, but I felt it was more than your typical romance. It was a story of love and human relationships. Eva Ibbotson has a way with words, and a way of describing her characters, that every scene, every person, comes vividly alive in your mind.

Susanna's dress shop stands in the delightful Madensky Square and is the very hub and heart of life. Susanna sympathizes with her neighbors, watches over Signi, the wretched, orphaned child prodigy, and with her infallible eye for dress, turns an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan.

There are many characters in Madensky Square, but Susanna’s dear friend Alice is the only one who has the slightest inkling that Susanna hides more than one secret. This hidden life, full of passion and anguish, gradually unfolds in a city of romance, music and gossip. As I was reading this book, I thought how this would make a wonderful TV series.

Reserved for ABC VBB

I picked up this book on a lark and ended up enjoying it more than I originally expected. I agree with booklady331 that it's more than a typical romance; I found myself caring about what would happen to the characters, and I liked the way the story unfolded.

I'll save this book for a VBB.
