Library Journal
★ 12/01/2014
The era is different but Solomons's novel has plenty of appeal for Downton Abbey fans. Elise Landau and her family flee Vienna as the Nazis encroach on the city. The family are unable to secure enough visas to send everyone to America, so Elise goes to England to work as a maid at the English estate owned by the wealthy Rivers family. While adapting to a life of hard work she falls in love with Kit Rivers, setting the scene for an upstairs/downstairs romance. (LJ 12/11)
