I have absolutely adored this series - and it makes me sad to realise there this is the end, but what a wonderful experience.It has been a joy to observe the life of a eccentric family before, during and after the Second World War through the eyes and perceptions of Sophie, princess of Montmaray.
With attention to detail, full of interesting historical figures and situations; a cast of lovable, crazy, wilful, intrepid, kind and loving characters, full of humour and tragedy, this is the kind of book that is hard to put down. Younger readers will learn just as much about European and American politics and the origins and history of WWII through these books than many a text book, with the added advantage of being a enjoyable, engaging read.
Lovely stuff
