Better than your average romance. com User, December 4, 1998. I really loved this book, it wasn't in the shops, but I read it in the college library. I was really annoyed when I read it, because the library closed and I couldn't take it home with me, and I was in early the next day to finish it.

I found The Morning Gift very much by accident, when I was listening to some Youtube tutorials, and somehow came across one reviewing this novel. It aroused my curiosity and now I believe I was meant to read it. I'm not a fan of romance novels in general (although I write them myself). Too many of them are sappy and cliché-ridden. But not this one. It's chuck full of delightful characters, humor, lovely descriptions that don't overpower the story, and a delicious Britishness with a flavoring of Viennese mixed in. And of course, romance. I want to read some more of Mrs. Ibbetson's books as well. Highly recommended.
This is not my favorite book by Eva Ibbotsen. I had to skip over the parts where the heroine was behaving too melodramatically for me to endure. Otherwise, I was entertained by the portrayals of some of the other self-involved characters who had taken refuge in Britain from the Holocaust of WWII. I much rather enjoyed The Secret Countess and Madensky Square, where the stories hang together better.

Character-driven, the plot might annoy some readers because if the characters were a little less proud or a little more open, it would eliminate several of the conflicts. However, I don't think the characters are overly obtuse--their foolishness is understandable and interesting to me.

The characters are bigger than the love story, though it is the driving force of the novel. They have relationships outside each other, and you know that both characters would be okay if it did not work out...but you really, really want it too, because they compliment each other so well!

Ibbotson also fills the book with well integrated historical information and beautiful scenery. Several books like this one are available on Kindle (The Magic Flute, A Song for Summer) with very similar settings and characters--a somewhat older, wiser man and a young but mature and generous young woman fall in love but struggle with their insecurities and percieved obligations. However, I read and thoroughly enjoyed them all. (Her fantastical books for young adults are bit different, but I would also reccommend those--again, strong characters made them really fun).
This only the second Ibbotsen novel I've read (In the Company of Swans the other), and I have become a fan. She knows how to tell a story even when the first chapter is purely narrative. I love her heroes and heroines (even though some reviewers don't) and settings. This story, in addition, has a wonderful set of secondary characters, so even though the hero and heroine don't have that much contact with each other over the course of the book, Ibbotsen succeeds in immersing one in the lives of the other characters. I do agree with one reviewer who didn't like the last quarter or so of the book. This is where my suspension of disbelief was shaken as well with the hero & heroine's behavior. The same thing happened to a slightly lesser degree in the other book--the classic no-no of romance writing, where a simple conversation can clear up the entire misunderstanding which instead leads to estrangement throughout the book and separation in the end. But, this book was first published a while ago when that plot device was still 'acceptable.' Romance writing has evolved quite a bit since then.
But definitely a keeper. I look forward to reading all her novels, both YA and Adult.
After reading 5 of Ibbotson's novels which were all captivating, I just know this will also be a good read, just haven't gotten to it yet. Its probably a 5-star book as well. My granddaughter turned me onto the first one "Journey to the River Sea". The stories are well written and are only missing coarse language, graphic sex, and gratuitous violence, none of which are missed or would add anything of quality to these stories. These are some of my guilty pleasures...I have lost many a weekend turning pages of Ibbotson's books.
A wonderful love story, although I got a little impatient with the self-created obstacles between the hero and heroine.
How I wish there were more books coming...such a good writer. She handles romance so skillfully that it's believable instead of sappy and predictable.
I've read anything and everything I could get my hands on by Ibbotson, a prize winning craftsman of story. It helps if you are familiar w/ the back ground music played by the supporting characters but it isn't required listening. Equally useful is the love of the science pursued by the protagonists; again no tests will be given.
Actually I loved this book for many of the same reasons I adored Maturin and Aubrey in Patrick O'Brien's series. This however spans pre -WWII Vienna and wartime Britain and a bit after. I've been on that beach in Northumberland and it does smell and feel exactly as Ruth found it. And in the magical walled garden but that's another story. Everyone works out her own destiny in this sensuous tale of love and redemption.
