I picked this one up just as I was finishing I Capture the Castle and was immediately struck by the similarities. Young girl, growing up in a castle, written in journal style, same time period. Even a common character name. Unlike I Capture the Castle, however, which maintains a slow, steady pace throughout, A Brief History of Montmaray becomes quite gripping about halfway through (and maintains this pace), when the fictitious island is visited by a couple of Nazis. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that Cooper writes a follow-up. ETA: Just realized there *is* a follow-up. Yay!

Debbie See that you are reading the NTB list.

Somer Is that where this one came from? I've added things from so many lists I can't keep track of what came from where!

Debbie I am looking forward to reading it soon.
