Quite good Gilman

by NJrose on Apr 28, 2007

As a fan of Dorothy Gilman, I enjoyed this book immensely. Primarily, because Gilman uses the plot to delve deeply into the psychology of the major character, Melissa, who has been an emotional cripple most of her life. Through the adventures foisted upon her, she finds a value for herself, and learns to embrace the risks of living fully.. As a single passenger on a ship bound for Europe, her tablemate clandestinely asks her to deliver a message in Majorca, the last stop on her itinerary. At first she does not take it seriously, but later learns that he has been murdered. She is followed on her travels, and becomes frightened, not knowing whom to trust. The plot takes her through Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, and finally Majorca, for the denoument, interspersing meetings with other travelers some of whom appear to bode ill for Melissa. Along the way, her personality and character undergoes a metamorphosis. This is a psychological novel, which is precisely why I liked it. The plot twists and turns serve the characterization, rather than the reverse. Different from the Mrs. Polifax novels, and in my opinion, better.
