In late December 1940, the British people are fighting for survival in the war against Germany. The Earl of Westrow, a Fascist supporter, puts into effect a plot which has been conceived by the Germans. He kidnaps the fourteen-year-old Princess Elizabeth. Westrow and the shadowy figures behind him believe that by threatening the Princess's life they can force King George VI to sign a peace treaty with Germany. Jane Padget, daughter of the King's Legal Secretary, and Seymour Jensen, son of a US Embassy official, are witnesses to Princess Elizabeth's capture. With time running out, these two young people embark on their own mission to resolve the crisis. Joseph P. Kennedy, Wallis Simpson, and Joachim von Ribbentrop all feature in this story of a plot to change the course of the war.
