Eve Haas is the daughter of a German Jewish family that took refuge in London after Hitler came to power. Following a terrifying air raid in the blitz, her father revealed the family secret - that her great-great grandmother Emilie was married to a Prussian prince. He then showed her the treasured leather-bound notebook inscribed to Emilie by the prince.
Eve was just eight years old when, as a Jewish girl in a Berlin school, the rumblings of the Nazis' rise to power began to threaten everything she knew. Fortunately, her parents managed to get the family out of Germany and start a new life in London. The horrors of war were just a part of the past - until the day when Eve inherited a treasured family notebook that hid an amazing secret.
