Review: The FitzOsbornes at War
The FitzOsbornes at War by Michelle Cooper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The FitzOsbornes are still living in exile after their island country was attacked by the Nazis, but they are not willing to sit around like spoiled heirs and heiresses. Toby, the King of Montmaray, has joined the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Princess Sophie has taken classes and been hired to create and edit rationing brochures. London is being bombed, the Allied forces are trying to fight the Nazis into surrendering, and Toby’s plane has been shot down over enemy territory. Even as war continues across Europe, love begins for our journaling princess and these exiled souls from Montmaray continue to long for peace.
The FitzOsbornes at War is the third and final volume in The Montmaray Journals. Although it gives a satisfying conclusion to the saga, it was the least enjoyable of the three. Many entries during the war time portion of the journal dragged with mundane daily activities. I am satisfied with the conclusion of the series, but if the first book was written in this manner, I would not have continued the series. The rating is actually 2.5 stars rounded up.
