Fans of this long-running series will welcome Maisie's return in this 11th installment while feeling the pain of her losses as deeply as if they were their own.---Kirkus -The latest installment of Jacqueline Winspear's consistently interesting series....[Maisie's] drawn into a climate of political intrigue that repels her-but keeps the rest of us avidly reading.---Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review -This eleventh entry in the Maisie Dobbs series, with enough backstory to stand alone, shows the same meticulous research that grounds these books so firmly in their time and place, along with moving life changes that further humanize the intrepid protagonist. Another winner from Winspear.---Booklist, starred review -A gripping and moving story, filled with fully realized characters and spare but stylish prose....As always, Maisie--one of the most complex and admirable characters in contemporary fiction--fulfills expectations. And Winspear continues to dazzle as she once again excels in and transcends the genre.---Richmond Times-Dispatch -With clarity and economy, Winspear lays the historical groundwork....The setting matters, but what may matter more is the lovely, sometimes poetic way Winspear pushes her heroine forward....May she shine on the literary scene for many books to come.---USA Today, 3.5 out of 4 stars "Winspear elegantly weaves historical events with Maisie's own suffering--the bombing of Guernica is particularly well-done--all while constructing an engaging whodunit.
