In this novel by the author of the international bestseller Mr Rosenblum's List it is the spring of 1938 and no longer safe to be a Jew in Vienna. Nineteen-year-old Elise Landau is forced to leave her glittering life of parties and champagne to become a parlour maid in England. 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 upstairs-downstairs friendship that will transform Tyneford—and Elise.
"Fans of Downton Abbey and Kate Morton's The Forgotten Garden will absolutely adore The House at Tyneford."—Kristin Hannah
"Both a love story set during the Second World War and an elegy to the English country house … the greatest pleasure of the novel is its stirring narrative and the constant sense of discovery."—Times Literary Supplement (London)
