My third Ibbotson and a sweet fairy tale about a princess who refutes her origins to work in the theatre, and the rather odd chap who meets her there.  Some lovely characters in the theatre side of things and also the aristocracy.  Not so many copy-editing errors in this one and it was an enjoyable read, however the author does have a tendency to make her lead characters perfect, and I miss the "edge" given to characters like Sara Crewe in The Secret Garden, with all her faults there to be ironed out.  But still a good, escapist read, and I’m going to continue with this author.
