Eva Ibbotson

One in a second trio of reprints of the adored Eva Ibbotson, and a sadder, more grown-up novel than EI’s other romances. A year in the life of a Viennese square circa 1910, told through the diaries of Susanna Weber, an independent, gentile dress-maker in her 30s. She observes her eccentric neighbours, solves small mysteries and avoids petty disasters, but Susanna has a secret life that Ibbotson conjures with all her usual wit and charm.
