In 1896, in a pilgrim church in the Alps, an abandoned baby girl is found by a cook and a housemaid. They take her home, and Annika grows up in the servants' quarters of a house belonging to three eccentric Viennese professors. She is happy there but dreams of the day when her real mother will come to find her. And sure enough, one day a glamorous stranger arrives at the door. After years of guilt and searching, Annika's mother has come to claim her daughter, who is in fact a Prussian aristocrat and whose true home is a great castle. But at crumbling, spooky Spittal Annika discovers that all is not as it seems in the lives of her new-found family . . .

Eva Ibbotson’s hugely entertaining story is a timeless classic for readers young and old.

Review:

...Involve[s] difficulties surmounted, and do[es] not patronize but won't give a child nightmares. -- The Times, 10 November 2004

A magnificent piece of storytelling, which positively luxuriates in the extraordinary twists and turns of the plot. -- Books for Keeps, November 2004

Book Description:

Annika never has a birthday – no one knows the date she was born. She celebrates her Found Day instead. For Annika was abandoned as a baby and found by a cook and a housemaid from Vienna. Her upbringing in the servants’ quarters of the house of three eccentric professors means that at an early age she can bake and ice a three-tier cake, and polish parquet floors to perfection. One summer's evening a very old lady comes to stay with Annika's awful neighbours. The stories of her extraordinary life as a famous dancer are spellbinding. Especially the tale of the besotted Russian count who gave her the legendary emerald, the Star of Kazan. Then suddenly a glamorous stranger arrives at Annika’s door. Her mother, after years of guilt and searching, has come to claim her. Annika is no servant but a Prussian aristocrat whose true home is a great castle. But at crumbling, spooky Spittal she discovers that all is not as it seems in the lives of her new-found family . . . Eva Ibbotson’s hugely entertaining story is a timeless classic for listeners young and old. Fans of JOURNEY TO THE RIVER SEA are in for an even more captivating treat in the eagerly-awaited THE STAR OF KAZAN.
