    I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (CMSnails)
    CMSnails: Many have remarked how similar Sophie's tale is to Cassandra's in I Capture the Castle. I would say that the style is very alike but the tales are much different. Both excellent reads!

I found this book even more compelling than the first of the series. Michelle Cooper has a great voice and complex character development and a masterful use of tying historical events to a made up royal family. I was very impressed. ( )

Really enjoyed this! I think it was more engaging than the first in the series, and I liked Sophie even more here. I loved having a fictional window on life in England as WWII approaches, and look forward to the third book with great anticipation!

The audiobook performance is one of the best I've listened to. ( )

Sophie, Veronica and Henry are now living with their wealthy Aunt Charlotte in England, having been exiled from Montmaray after it was bombed by Nazis. Aunt Charlotte is determined to have Sophie, Veronica and the new King, Toby, married soon, but they are more concerned with reclaiming their country and with the impending start of WWII. I loved seeing Sophie mature throughout "The FitzOsbornes in Exile" and use her particular strengths to pull the family through such a difficult time. This is a great book for anyone interested in the history of this time period, as it referenced many different events that led up to WWII. I'm looking forward to reading the next and, I believe, last book in this series. ( )

16th January 1937
I write this sitting at an exquisite little Louis the Fifteenth secretaire in the White Drawing Room, using a gold fountain pen borrowed from the King of Montmaray and a bottle of ink provided by one of the footmen.
