A Countess Below Stairs, by Eva Ibbotson

This was just wonderful. It has been SO LONG since I have just enjoyed a book this much- and it was such an unexpected treat. I usually don't read romance, and hardly ever read historical fiction, but this was just enchanting. Exiled Russian Countess Anna goes to work at an English country house, and to say much more would be plot spoiling, but I LOVED it, and want to read many more by Ibbotson. YA, but I think if she had spiced it up a bit, it would have been a HUGE adult read too. As is, it is just lovely.
