Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eva Ibbotson was an Austrian-born British novelist. She is known for her award-winning children's books and for her romance novels, which have been marketed to both a young adult and adult readership. Eva Ibbotson was born Maria Charlotte Michelle Wiesner in Vienna, Austria, to non-practising Jewish parents in 1925. Her father, Berthold Wiesner, was a physiologist and her mother, Anna Gmeyner, a communist playwright who had worked with Bertolt Brecht and written film scripts for G. W. Pabst. Her parents separated in 1928 and after remaining in Vienna in a church orphanage she joined her father, who had left Austria to work in Scotland in 1933 just before Hitler and the Nazi party came into power. She was educated at Dartington Hall School; attended Bedford College, London, graduating in 1945; Cambridge University from 1946-47; and the University of Durham, from which she graduated with a diploma in education in 1965
