Highly, highly recommended. Set in the few years preceding WWII, this is the second installment in the Montmaray Journals. The FitzOsbornes have been bombed out of Montmaray, their island nation two hundred miles from the coast of Spain, and attempt to wrest it out of German control while trying to keep themselves sane in the endless onslaught of debutante balls. Though they might sound frothy and frivolous, these books are funny, charming, and at times saddening. I found this installment more fulfilling than the first, as Sophia has grown quite considerably and is much less shallow than in the previous book (A Brief History of Montmaray). The female characters are strong and assertive, and I can find no fault in the artful way Michelle Cooper combines fiction with fact.

"You look very nice, Sophia."
"Thank you. Now tell Veronica how lovely she looks."
"She looks as though she's on the verge of destroying the furniture and running amok with a table leg."
