Narration

I liked the story but not how it was narrated. I've always found Maisie to be a proper lady with a strong character but this narrator, in my opinion, put her across as an intelligent and boring goody two shoes - too prissy.

Our "Man" in Gibraltar

Another excellent tale, with an excellent compelling narrator. This is not a frivolous war time romance with knickers in the wind like so many other writers pen. The writer has used all her tools to empower and embellish this enjoyable epithany.
