Review to follow soon…I am about halfway through this book which has taken me on travels to Casablanca, Fez and Tangiers. There is a missing person mystery, maybe spies and/or smuggling. What has happened to Julia’s cousin? Will she find him? So far this is a fun read that takes place in the 1950s and was written in the 1970s. The book is part of a series about Julia Probyn.
UPDATE…Finished my Armchair travels with The Lighthearted Quest. I enjoyed following Julia’s adventures and learning more about the politics of the time. The author appears knowledgeable about the conflicts between the French and the citizens of the cities mentioned above. Everything is tied up very neatly at the end. I would most likely read other books in this series although the novels might seem a bit slow to the modern reader. If you enjoyed books by Helen MacInnes, give this a try.
