In This Grave Hour ~ Jacqueline Winspear


I was not in the frame of mind to appreciate this book, so that tainted my review.  The narrator, Orlagh Cassidy, has a slightly depressive voice, which didn't help my lack of joie de vivre with the story, so I elected to skip the repeated references to (the years back) tragic death of her husband and a subsequent miscarriage.  The author includes this as a very lengthy explanation, almost word for word, in every single book.  IMO, it is unnecessary and repetitious detail at this point in the series. 

The main mystery, the murder of the Belgians, wore a bit thin. The secondary mystery, trying to work out who the evacuee Anna is, and where she is from, was much more interesting.
