A good Maisie Dobbs book. She is in Gibraltar in 1937 and is a year out from losing her husband and pregnancy/baby when he chose to jump in a plane to test fly it and it crashed. She is devastated in so many ways and does not want to go home yet. She gets tracked down by Brian Huntley and ends up in the middle of murder but also the Spanish Civil War. She ends up (after solving all the mysteries) joining another woman in the hills to tend to the wounded who find their way to the small monastery. Such an interesting picture of a place and time as well as the goodness of character that is Maisie.
