"War came early to the FitzOsbornes when the Nazis bombed their island home - but now it comes to the world. How will they survive? The final book in the trilogy that is destined to become a much-loved classic.Sophie FitzOsborne and the royal family of Montmaray escaped their remote island home when the Nazis attacked. But now that war has come to England and the rest of the world as well, nowhere is safe. Sophie fills her journal with tales of a life in wartime. Stories of blackouts and the Blitz. Dancing in nightclubs with soldiers on leave. And desperately waiting for news of her brother Toby, last seen flying over enemy territory. But even as bombs rain down on London, hope springs up in surprising places, and love blooms. And when the Allies begin to drive their way across Europe, the FitzOsbornes take heart. Maybe, just maybe, there will be a way to liberate Montmaray - to go home again at last. Sometimes heart-stopping, sometimes heart-breaking, Sophie's story will, as always, capture readers' hearts."
