A Dangerous Place
Reviewed by- Linda (2017/06/17, 11:21 PM)
As Jacqueline Winspear pulls you into Maisie’s marvelous world, you feel like you are getting together with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. Four years have passed in Maisie’s life, and a lot has happened, offstage so to speak. I have to admit the author covered a lot of ground in a few pages and mostly through letters – which seems impersonal and rushed. However, that being said, once the story gets rolling, Maisie is true to form and a joy to visit with again. She has suffered a great loss, two actually, so a lot of her inner dialog and the choices she makes reflects this sorrow. Winspear does a great job of making the reader feel Maisie’s pain and for historical fiction fans, there is certainly no shortage of historical and political details of the Spanish Civil War and 1937 Gibraltar. One final thought, I missed some of the “usual suspects,” like Billy, Sandra and Maisie’s friends, and hope to see them in the future. Overall, I love reading about Maisie and love the fresh writing style of Jacqueline Winspear; this book did not disappoint.Back.
