Format: Paperback
Towards the end of World War II, Lady Anne Jocelyn returns to England from occupied France. When she arrives at her home, her husband and other relations greet her as if she were a ghost. Not surprising, considering that they thought her dead for the past 3 three years.

Most reluctantly, her husband, Sir Philip, agrees to accept her as his wife, as well as to a 6 month period of reconciliation. The resemblance to his wife is extraordinary, but he feels that somehow she is simply not his wife.

When a murder occurs, Miss Silver, a retired governess, turned private enquiry agent, gets involved in the seemingly strange doings surrounding the newly returned Lady Jocelyn, it is only a matter of time before the thickening plot is revealed and truth wins out.

This is a quintessential English mystery, well-written and thoroughly enjoyable. It will be appreciated by those who are fans of Miss Silver, as well as those who simply love a good English murder mystery.

You can't come home again...but maybe someone can Oct. 4 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A Miss Silver mystery though she doesn't show up until mid-way through the book. We start with a the return of a woman everyone thought had been buried 3 1/2 years ago. Her husband says it isn't her but other feel it would be terrible if you can home and no one wanted you any more. It seems a simple case of mistaken identity so long ago but it's the middle of WWII and things are never that simple.

Miss Silver and DS Frank Abbott think there's more going on with the death of a woman from the country, the mistaken identity, and the German spy network.

It's a quick read and the story is well laid out and the personalities all ring true in their confusion, anger, love, and hates. Rather more intricate plotting than in some other of Miss Siler mysteries.

A Nice Tight Little Espionage Story. Sept. 22 2004
By S. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a big Miss Silver fan, and this book, though different than her usual fare, is a treat. The story is more espionage than a mystery, but in true Patricia Wentworth style, she has drawn up some very good characters. And as always, Miss Silver and her friend DS Frank Abbott are there to help us through the plot. In this book, the plot is more complex than some of her books. There is a case of mistaken identity (maybe?), German spies (maybe?)and family skeletons. The Jocelyn family has a few of those in their closet, and we get to see them shaken out. I am certainly enjoying going through the long-running Miss Silver series again. A chance to catch up with some old favourites and to discover some new hidden gems (like this one).

She Came Back May 28 2012
By Amy Texan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book - halfway through, I thought it was too simple but it was entertaining to read - the synopsis revealed too much - hence, you knew pretty much where it was going but it was a good read on the patio while relaxing. Just what I needed...enjoyable, easy, able to pick up and put down when necessary get right back into it.
