""The House at Tyneford" is a wonderful, old-fashioned novel that takes you back in time to the manor homes, aristocracy and domestic servants of England.

""The House at Tyneford" is an exquisite tale of love, family, suspense, and survival. Capturing with astonishing detail and realism a vanished world of desire and hope trapped beneath rigid class convention, Natasha Solomons's stunning new novel tells the story of Elise Landau, a Jewish Austrian teenager from a family of artists, who is forced to flee her home in Vienna carrying only a guide to household management and her father's last novel, hidden on pages stuffed inside a viola. Elise hides as a parlor maid in a fine English country estate, but soon she discovers that passion can be found in the most unexpected places. Already a bestseller in Britain, American readers will thrill to "The House at Tyneford"."---Katherine Howe, author of"The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane"

Fans of "Downton Abbey" and Kate Morton's "The Forgotten Garden" will absolutely adore "The House at Tyneford"."---Kristin Hannah, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Home Front"
