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.

The House at Tyneford

I really enjoyed this story. Told from the the perspective of a Jewish teenager as she matures into adulthood far away from her Viennese privileged background. A domestic refugee working in a upper class English household. She goes from Mozart to dust mops. She learns life lessons, about work, first love, pride in her accomplishments, love for her new homeland, loss, and acceptance. A very good read.

The House at Tyneford

The book is very well written. I couldn't put it down after I picked it up. The story gets you hooked on what's happening but then it takes a turn and became not enjoyable and creepy. The whole book was good up until the last few chapters.
