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.

Praise for The Montmaray Journals 3: FitzOsbornes At War

“This is historical fiction at its most engaging. Sophie’s narrative communicates vividly both what is happening and how she feelds throughout six dangerous, difficult years . . . The trilogy is highly recommended with this volume arguably the best of the three.”

Lyn Linning, Magpies

“Suspenseful and heartbreaking, The FitzOsbornes at War will leave you breathless … I cannot recommend this series highly enough … Cooper writes beautifully, drawing history in detailed brushstrokes while always moving the action and characters forward. And while I can vouch for the fact that the trilogy can be read out of order with complete satisfaction, if you can start at the beginning, I have no doubt it will be even more powerful.”

“Highly recommended … This is a wonderful but often heart wrenching conclusion to a fascinating series ... Cooper's superb writing effortlessly gained my attention and held it to the end as I avidly read on to see what would happen to Sophie, Veronica, Henry, Simon and Toby.”
