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.
