1929: jazz, parties and an endlessly rising stockmarket. But an insignificant politician called Adolf Hitler plans blackmail - and even murder - to snare Miss Lily, her espionage network - and the British royal family.
Unimaginable danger creeps ever closer to Miss Lily and her loved ones . . .
Amid the decadence and instability 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.
Long-lost love 'John' has also returned to Sophie's life, as well as a young woman determined to kill the woman she believes betrayed the female war-time resistance fighters of La Dame Blanche: her mother, Miss Lily Shillings.
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.
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.
