Staff Reviews


Upstairs Downstairs meets Wodehouse in this WWII romantic comedy. Hannah has been sent from Germany to live with her relatives at the same time Anna is sent to spy on the family for the Nazis. Their identities are soon confused, as are the positions of their paramours. The result is a sparkling romantic comedy certain to appeal to adults as well as teens. — Marika McCoola

Description


In 1938, Germany is no place for a half-Jewish girl, so teenage cabaret singer Hannah goes to the grand country estate of Starkers, where she expects to be received as a distant relative. British bombshell Anna is supposed to enter the household as a kitchen maid and spy for her father’s Nazi sympathizer friends. But there’s a mix-up. When Anna is introduced as family and Hannah is banished to the kitchen, the novel erupts into a delightful and suspenseful comedy of errors. Romance, history, and philosophy sparkle and waltz in this brilliant book.
