Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2009 Kids' List
“A Brief History of Montmaray is an engrossing historical novel set on a fictional island between England and Spain on the brink of WWII-- a sovereign island with a mad king, a group of delightful cousins, and a tiny handful of locals. The book starts off as a fun romp, but with each contact from the outside world, we learn more about the Spanish Civil War and the Nazis' rise, until global politics change life on Montmoray forever. This fantastic yarn is filled with interesting thoughts about politics, responsibility, history and legacy, love, and jealousy.”
-- Tegan Tigani, Queen Anne Books, Seattle, WA
