Note: Eva Ibbotson has proven that romantic fiction can be funny, well written, and even a little erudite. In this collection are some of the best of Ibbotson's short stories. They range from nineteeth-century Vienna to the north of England at the end of the last century, from prerevolutionary Russia to the devastated Brazilian Amazon. Each setting is magically recreated and peopled with the remarkable, memorable characters that are Ibbotson's trademark.
