Maisie investigates the circumstances around Eddie Pettit's death, when asked by the costermongers of her youth. In so doing, she learns about a potential future for her country that she had hoped she'd never have to think about again. Meanwhile, she's questioning her feelings about James, and still trying to come to terms with her wealth from Maurice's bequest by giving it away. Dr. Masters points out that Maisie's generosity could have a dark side. That those whom she's helped may also grow to resent their inability to pay her back, and to always feel beholden to her. Thankfully, Maisie listens to her and also to Priscilla, who wants her to stop trying to fix everything that's wrong in the world around her. Looks like Maisie will be traveling in the next book, with or without James remains to be seen. I would really love it if Maisie could lighten up a bit, and enjoy life some. The war has had its grip on her way too long.

For evil to happen, all that is necessary is for good men to do nothing.
