    September 3, 1939. Great Britain declares war on Germany and this novel begins. Another excellent installment of the Maisie Dobbs series. The main story involves Belgian refugees in England from The Great War, but along the way we see the minutiae of the country preparing for another war. Barrage ba...

    It's okay, but not up to her other books which were solid 5-stars. I know I'm in the minority here, which is okay, but I personally found the story line rather boring and tedious. In the past I could read her books in a day or two. I found myself putting this book aside often. The wrap-up was contri...

    I lose my train of thought if I so much as hear a dog bark outside - but in this book, the redoubtable Maisie Dobbs can listen to her country declaring war on Nazi Germany and still have the pluck and concentration to solve a couple of initially baffling murders! Here's my review over at Open Letter...

    It is great to have Maisie, Sandra and Billie back in the old office working on investigations again. Feels like the book is back on track. World War II has started and for all the veterans of WWI and their families it is a difficult time.Dr. Francesca Thomas of the Belgium Embassy and secret servic...

    This series is like a comforting bowl of porridge for me. I like the historical details, and it's been interesting finding out little things about how England came out of the First World War in the first book in this series, all the way to this book, with England entering the Second World War....

    I have enjoyed each addition to this wonderful series, which often leaves me thoughtful, or touches me in some way. This volume caused me to think about the way we behave during a time of grieving, and most particularly on how humor can provide a brief respite from the heavy burden of deep sorrow. I...
