Introduction

Fans of Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden and TVs Downton Abbey will love this sweeping New York Times bestselling historical novel of love and loss. 
 
The start of an affair, the end of an era.
 
It’s the spring of 1938 and no longer safe to be a Jew in Vienna. Nineteen-year-old Elise Landau is forced to leave her glittering life of parties and champagne to become a parlor maid in England. She arrives at Tyneford, the great house on the bay, where servants polish silver and serve drinks on the lawn. But war is coming, and the world is changing. When the master of Tyneford’s young son, Kit, returns home, he and Elise strike up an unlikely friendship that will transform Tyneford—and Elise—forever.

I really enjoyed the characters in this book, however, the more books I read about the Nazi invasion, I am inclined to believe that Adolf Hitler was a devil. He was not only mean to the Jews of Germany... (read more)
