Description

Set against the backdrop of gathering war, A Song for Summer is an unforgettable love story from master storyteller Eva Ibbotson, with an introduction from Ella Risbridger.

When Ellen Carr abandons grey, dreary London to become housekeeper at an experimental school in Austria, she soon knows she’s found her calling.

Swept into an idyllic world of mountains, music, eccentric teachers and wayward children, Ellen brings order and joy to all around her. But it’s the handsome, mysterious gardener, Marek, who intrigues her – Marek, who has a dangerous secret. As Hitler’s troops march across Europe, Ellen finds she has promises to keep, even if it means sacrificing her future happiness . . .

‘I have binged on Eva Ibbotson . . . her elegantly written, witty and well-observed fables’ Nigella Lawson, The Times
