This novel is set in the time period of World War II and while most are preoccupied with the what is happening in the world there is a society that feels they are above. Three young socialites go on an adventure to prove ones father right and to return into his good graces. Being naive about their new surroundings, one bends to fit in, while the others do not dare step down from their entitled station. Being in a strange land unknown things are abound.

I really enjoy the stories by Sara Gruen. This one did not disappoint me. When I first started reading I really did not care for the characters but by the end Maddie had another friend.
