Sophie FitzOsborne begins writing in her journal in October 1936. Sophie’s uncle John is the King of the small island kingdom of Montmaray, which makes her Princess Sophie. But her living conditions are far from royal. Her uncle, King John has been deranged since his wife left him years ago, their castle is falling apart, and most of the villagers have gone to live elsewhere. She plans to go to London with her favorite cousin Veronica so they can attend grand parties and meet dashing young men. Unfortunately, her cousin refuses to leave the island and the book she’s writing about the Kingdom of Montmaray. Sophie spends her time trying to convince Veronica of the splendors of London, keeping her younger sister from getting into trouble, and dreaming about their housekeeper’s handsome son. Sophie’s life seems like it will continue as it always has, but everything changes when Nazis come to the island and the FitzOsborne’s must face old secrets and new dangers.
