Eva Ibbotson brings early 1900's Vienna to life, the people, the place, the culture. I love her books for adults - each one is a delight! Madensky Square is an excellent book, about a complex and compelling woman. Highly recommended!

My first Ibbotson for adults. Best crafted novel I've read in a long time. I LOVED her characters. Nothing extra; one's imagination with her hints and details does it all.

I can even hear the music rehearsals and choirs of 1911 Vienna in the background!

But secret sorrows and consuming desires exist beneath Susanna's cheerful facade----embroidering the rich tapestry of a remarkable life as inticate and sumptuous as the beautiful clothing she so painstakingly creates."
