The book is set in 1941. Britain is alone in the war against Germany and the city of London is getting pounded by the German Blitzkrieg. (As are many other cities). Londoners live in a ongoing situation of bombings undermining their lives. They know the RAF is also returning the favor by bombing German cities, but that’s cold solace for those affected by the war. They’re waiting/praying/hoping the US will enter the war. Maisie becomes involved with the British SOE program while carrying on her business. She’s also involved with a “dishy” American diplomat, while also trying to protect her family and friends by moving everyone to her house in Kent. Getting them out of town, so to speak.
She becomes involved with a young boy who may or may not have witnessed a brutal murder during a blackout. Who was killed, and why? The murder case is really the least interesting part of the case. It involves rivalries between French and British troops after the Great War, which have been carried on through the years since. No, the real meaty parts of the book involves daily life on the Homefront. And the relationships between the characters.
Jacqueline Winspear has written a very good book. If you’re a fan of hers, I think you’ll like the book.
Happily the same cast populates this book and are welcomed like old friends. To have followed them and seen their growth, happiness and loss makes them feel real.
As Maisie enters a new phase of her life, so too does the war. I can’t wait for the next installment of this wonderful series.

This time I think the plot was quite complicated and not the strongest plot. However, following the lives of the characters was enjoyable as ever. I loved poor little Freddie.
Let's hope life remains positive for them all despite the troubles of the war. No unexpected deaths.
Sorry, Ms Winspeare.
You have her investigating plus the personal side which makes it a good read
It's best if you read from the beginning of the series so you understand some of who is who when mention
