4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying wrap-up to the Martha trilogy! 5 Aug. 2016
By P. Shropshire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book picks up 10 years after the end of Martha in Paris and answers all the unanswered questions. Aunt Dolores (and presumably Harry, although he isn't mentioned) has passed on - Martha being Martha didn't attend the funeral because she was busy working.

Finally, after 10 years of hard work and moderate success, Martha is ready for a Paris show, agrees le maître and Mr. Joyce. Mr. Joyce, now 80, had intended to accompany her, but had a stroke on the eve of their departure. So Martha goes alone.

She is a smashing success and becomes an instant celebrity; however, this also makes inevitable a collision with her past.

Eric finds her. She meets 10-year-old George who, although he still looks like Eric, certainly inherited some personality traits from Martha.

Her stay in Paris is abruptly ended when she receives a telegram that Mr. Joyce has had another stroke. She rushes back to England. She finally realizes that she truly loves Mr. Joyce. She tells him all about George. Mr. Joyce dies in her arms. She acknowledges that she will go back to Paris and bring George back to England with here.

Martha hasn't really changed. She is still as work-centered as ever. She has, however, perhaps softened just a bit - maturity, perhaps. She is a marvelously interesting character.

One thing I found so funny. Martha is described as "stout," "outsize," and her figure as columnar, without a waist. She is 10(!) stone which is 140 pounds. 140 pounds, unless one is 4 feet tall, is NOT fat!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars I love her books 19 Feb. 2017

Wry. Witty as all get out. Great vocabulary and sentence structure......What more is there to say except that Amazon required nine more words when I was already done at nine fewer than what is required? Great book. Dumb policy.
