Best of the Month, October 2009: On a remote island kingdom of Montmaray live the last of the FitzOsbornes, a royal family of scrappy (but dignified) orphans teetering on the edge of poverty in their crumbling castle. It's 1936, and sixteen-year-old Sophie occupies her days with mundane household chores, half-hearted study in the family library, raising her unruly tomboy sister, and keeping a diary of distant hopes and longings. Her older cousin Veronica-a budding scholar-writes a history of the Montmaravians while keeping close tabs on the current political signs that point to another world war. One of those signs--in the form of a boat carrying Nazi "historians"--lands on their shores. The arrival of the Germans sets in motion a chain of events that rivals any of the high adventures of the princesses' colorful ancestors. Michelle Cooper's A Brief History of Montmaray breathes new life into the dark and stormy romantic suspense novels that made earlier generations ardent fans of the Br?ntes, Daphne du Maurier, and Victoria Holt. Teens and 'tweens will be tearing through the novel's second half by the night light. --Lauren Nemroff children's,children's books,genre fiction,historical fiction,literature and fiction,love and romance,teen and young adult,war,9 - 12 years Historical Fiction, Knopf Books for Young Readers

The politics of Europe seem far away from their remote island—until two German officers land a boat on Montmaray.

I’m talking about A Brief History of Montmaray by Michelle Cooper. I’m calling her Australia’s next stroke of literary brilliance.”—Viewpoint Michelle Cooper, Books, A Brief History Of Montmaray Books, Random House Children's Books
