              THE WAR IS OVER. BUT CAN THERE EVER TRULY BE PEACE? 'The story is equal parts Downton Abbey and wartime action, with enough romance and intrigue to make it 100% not-put-down-able.' - Australian Women's Weekly on Miss Lily's Lovely Ladies Australian heiress Sophie Higgs was 'a ros...e of no-man's land', founding hospitals across war-torn Europe during the horror that was WW1. Now, in the 1920s, Sophie's wartime work must be erased so that the men who returned can find some kind of 'normality'. Sophie is, however, a graduate of the mysterious Miss Lily's school of charm and intrigue, and once more she risks her own life as she attempts to save others still trapped in the turmoil and aftermath of war. But in this new world, nothing is clear, in politics or in love. For the role of men has changed too. Torn between the love of three very different men, Sophie will face her greatest danger yet as she attempts an impossible journey across the world to save Nigel, Earl of Shillings - and her beloved Miss Lily. In this sequel to the bestselling Miss Lily's Lovely Ladies, Jackie French draws us further into a compelling story that celebrates the passion and adventure of an unstoppable army of women who changed the world.

              The world is at war, and women are working, often behind the scenes, in areas from nursing to espionage. And despite their many successes, these are the women the men don't see. Unimaginable danger creeps ever closer to Miss Lily and her loved ones . . . Amid the decadence and in...stability of Berlin in the 1920s, a band of women must unite to save all that is precious to them. With her dangerous past behind her, Australian heiress Sophie Higgs lives in quiet comfort as the Countess of Shillings, until Hannelore, Princess of Arneburg, charms the Prince of Wales. He orders Sophie, Nigel - and Miss Lily - to investigate the mysterious politician Hannelore believes is the only man who can save Europe from another devastating war. His name is Adolf Hitler. As unimaginable peril threatens to destroy countries and tear families apart, Sophie must face Goering's Brownshirt Nazi thugs, blackmail, and the many possible faces of love. And then the man she once adored and thought was lost reappears, and Sophie will be confronted by the girl intent on killing the mother who betrayed her family in the war: Miss Lily. The third book in the Miss Lily series, The Lily in the Snow is a story filled with secrets that also explores the strength of friendship and the changing face of women in this new Europe.

              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?
