The year is 1936 and the new King Edward VIII wishes to marry divorcee and suspected German agent, Wallis Simpson. The 'red boxes', which are the official and often top-secret material the king must read and sign are neglected for weeks. Some have even been seen in Berlin. German...y is rearming with 300,000 fighter planes per year. Can Britain and its empire survive? Or can a woman change the course of history? Can Miss Lily's most surprisingly successful student, Australian cattle empress Sophie Higgs, now the widowed Countess of Shillings, seduce 'David', not just from marriage with Simpson, but from irresponsibility, extravagance, and the fantasy of being a fascist king? And what of the man who loves Sophie, war-damaged doctor, Daniel Greenman, and Sophie's two children, Miss Lily, and even her late husband Nigel, who - just possibly - might not be dead? And what will Hannelore, Princesszin von Arneburg choose, torn between the country she loves and the blind child she adores, now deemed 'Lebensunwertes Leben ... unworthy of life' by Adolf Hitler's new law? If a man can sacrifice his life for his country and all he loves, should a woman hesitate to sacrifice her honour? Based on new correspondence found in the German archives, Lilies, Lies and Love is entirely a work of fiction. Or is it?
