    A wonderfyl & evocative Maisie Dobbs book!

    In order to avoid spoilers I am not going to summarize the story in this book. Suffice it to say that Maisie is at a crossroads in her life & disembarks early from a ship headed to England in Gibraltar to try to figure out her future. Less of this book deals with investigating a mystery than normal and more with explaining & dealing with Maisie's personal crisis. If I was judging this book only as a mystery book I would give it a 4 star rating. But rating it as a well written & evocative book that examines the personality & life of a well loved character I give it a five star rating. Maisie has always been a character conflicted by her humble past & her more worldly status as a result of her inheritance from Dr. Maurice Blanche & her relationships with the Compton family & this book delves further into that conflict. I really enjoyed the author's character development of Maisie & I loved the references to characters from past Maisie books. I hope that future Maisie books will find some of the past characters as regulars; they are missed. I thought that her handling of the Spanish Civil War, a conflict that I had never taken the time to fully understand, was deft & much appreciated. This book is a wonderful handling of a personal crisis that adds the element of mystery & historical fiction.

    Another fabulous book

    History, culture, intrigue combine to engage and entertain the reader. The author's descriptive style enhances and never bores and transports you right into the centre of the story.

    Surprisingly not as good

    Not as good as the other Maisie's. Still worth a read.

    Enjoyable read

    This book was less about the mystery and more about Maisie's life journey than previous volumes. It was a very enjoyable read.
