Anne McPhail, retired pediatrician, shattered by her
experience in Bermuda, rents a tiny house in Setenil, Spain,
hoping to reconcile what she learned about herself and
Thomas after the gunfire in that dark room on the island.
But she sees a child on the terrace of the local cafe who
doesn’t seem to belong to her minders and then Ari, the
Mossad agent who saved Anne’s life, seeks her out with a
plan to rescue the child from kidnappers. Should she trust
him? Three days later, she is on the run with Ari and the
little girl, with killers Esti and Sergio on their trail. She
glimpses a man she thinks is Thomas. Is he, too in Spain?
And why?
How far will Anne go to save Naomi?
From Spain to France to Italy, this is Anne’s most
dangerous journey.

A woman vacationing in Spain rescues a kidnapped child.

Anne Simpson
I thoroughly enjoyed The Child on the Terrace. It remained suspenseful to the very end. Virginia painted a very good picture of the area where the mystery begins, also of other places the story took Anne and Naomi to on their "dangerous journey" through Spain, France and Italy.
I developed an attachment to certain characters in the book, despite their questionable intentions! The author's interest and knowledge of art is appreciated too throughout the story. A very good read on a snowy winter day!
