Product Overview

Michelle Cooper combines the drama of pre-War Europe with the romance of debutante balls and gives us another compelling historical page turner.
Sophia FitzOsborne and the royal family of Montmaray escaped their remote island home when the Germans attacked, and now find themselves in the lap of luxury. Sophie''s journal fills us in on the social whirl of London''s 1937 season, but even a princess in lovely new gowns finds it hard to fit in. Is there no other debutante who reads?!
And while the balls and house parties go on, newspaper headlines scream of war in Spain and threats from Germany. No one wants a second world war. Especially not the Montmaravians--with all Europe under attack, who will care about the fate of their tiny island kingdom?
Will the FitzOsbornes ever be able to go home again? Could Montmaray be lost forever?

"From the Hardcover edition."

Praise
" The lively, charming characters meet challenges with pluck and ingenuity as well as a great deal of humor...Multilayered and engrossing, Cooper's tale alternates between frothy fun and heartbreaking seriousness with utter mastery."
"It's hard not to see this as deeply indebted to Dodie Smith and tone and rhythm, but Cooper's engagement of politics...and her quick, inventive wit give the book its own captivating originality."
From the Publisher
Annotation Forced to live in England after the Nazis bombed their island home, the royal FitzOsbornes are hurled into blue-blood London, where they are fascinated, titillated, and vaguely uncomfortable with their new lives. Staying at wealthy Aunt Charlotte's in London, everyone seems to have a different agenda. Aunt Charlotte plans to marry off Sophie and Veronica by the end of the Season, while Henry finds having a governess torturous, and Toby is being stubborn about the rigorous preparations for kinghood. Though Sophie loves attending balls, tea parties, and other wonderful social engagements, she is plagued by the family's many problems, the threat of the Nazis, and the repercussions of the Spanish Civil War. This follow-up to A BRIEF HISTORY OF MONTMARAY is a delicious combination of pre-WWII political intrigue, wonderful character development, and a spot-on depiction upper-class English life.
