Spring 1937. In the four years since she left England, Maisie Dobbs has experienced love, contentment, stability, and the deepest tragedy a woman can endure. Now, all she wants is the peace she believes she might find by returning to India. But her sojourn in the hills of Darjeeling is cut short when her stepmother summons her home to England, her aging father Frankie Dobbs is not getting any younger. But on a ship bound for England, Maisie realizes she isn't ready to return. Against the wishes of the captain who warns her, "You will be alone in a most dangerous place," she disembarks in Gibraltar. Though she is on her own, Maisie is far from alone: the British garrison town is teeming with refugees fleeing a brutal civil war across the border in Spain.Yet the danger is very real. Days after Maisie's arrival, a photographer and member of Gibraltar's Sephardic Jewish community, Sebastian Babayoff, is murdered, and Maisie becomes entangled in the case, drawing the attention of the British Secret Service. Under the suspicious eye of a British agent, Maisie is pulled deeper into political intrigue on "the Rock" - arguably Britain's most important strategic territory - and renews an uneasy acquaintance in the process. At a crossroads between her past and her future, Maisie must choose a direction, knowing that England is, for her, an equally dangerous place, but in quite a different way.… (mais)

I'm beginning to think Jacqueline Winspear doesn't ever want Maisie Dobbs happy. ( )

April 1937 and after four years away with many changes in Maisie Dobbs' life she is on the way back to England. But not being quite ready she stops off at Gibraltar. A country dealing with the effects of the Spanish Civil War and its refugees into the rock. It isn't long before Maisie literally stumbles over a dead body. But where will her investigations lead to.
Another enjoyable well-written but slow-paced story in this series ( )

I’ve been looking forward to the Munich 1938 book and that’s the next book so I was worried about being able to thoroughly enjoy this one as I read it.

I couldn’t believe how much happened in the first chapter. It felt incredibly rushed and almost like reading an entire (skipped) book. A few years has elapsed since the last book.

Who knew?! Maisie’s name is Margaret Rebecca. I don’t remember knowing this before this book #11.

Gibraltar was interesting and I guess it was a nice change but I still prefer the English settings and I was surprised that there was little mentioned about Maisie’s time in India. It was mentioned that she was there but none of the story took place when she was actually there. And then there was some time in Spain. This is prior to WWII but during the Spanish Civil War. I wasn’t wild to be back in a war zone and back to nursing. I’d been happy to have that left behind for quite a while.

In some ways this book felt different from all the other ten books preceding it. I did enjoy it though. The new supporting characters were interesting. Gibraltar was interesting. I took this book off of my UK shelf though. I’d made the false assumption that all the Maisie Dobbs books would fit on that shelf. Even though the next book takes place in Munich at least some of the time I think and hope some of it will take place back again in England.

3-3/4 stars ( )

After traveling to India and answering YES to James' proposal of marriage and marrying him, they move to Canada where he is working on an aviation project with James Otterburn. After a very unfortunate accident, Maisie is left bereft again. She eventually travels to India and then decides to go home at the request of her step-mother, but only gets as far as Gibraltar due to her reluctance to confront her previous life in England. There she again tries to heal, but while out on a walk, she finds the body of a murdered photographer, a member of Gibraltar’s Sephardic Jewish community, Sebastian Babayoff. Scotland Yard and the British Secret Service are also in Gibraltar and make contact with Maisie as she bucks the political forces at work to find out who murdered the photographer. ( )
