1 Dowden, Mavis Bacca Spy-Jacked
Pulborough, West Sussex SMH 1991 0951261924 / 9780951261927 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. The author begins her story in Rome, where her happy, simple life, studying and teaching the violin, was interrupted when World War II broke out. She did not wish to return to England but as a British subject she would be interned in Italy. The nuns at her convent advised her to go to Switzerland or Spain, and she opted for Spain, where the main action in her true but almost unbelievable story takes place, just after the Civil War. Here her simple lifestyle, studying and teaching in a convent's cloistered conditions was suddenly to change as she became caught up in a Resistance operation dedicated to rescuing prisoners of war who had escaped over the Pyrenees after the fall of Free France. While engaged in this dangerous work she was arrested, imprisoned, and charged with high espionage. **** NOT EX LIB ****
