Clinging precariously to life, shattered in body and broken in spirit, Captain Reginald Frobisher returns to his wife and family in Tarifa from the hell of Passchandaele. Surely, for them the war is over. A simple, innocent servant maiden, betrayed and discarded by a callous lover, is left to face an unenviable fate. Surely, any hope of a decent life is finished. Pride and arrogance from the past, the love and commitment of youth and the blind workings of an unpredictable destiny are the themes of the story as the hero from the mud of Flanders and the distraught girl from the servant's kitchen drift into a parallel to a conclusion of tragedy or fulfilment. It is against the background of a turbulent Spain, seething with the unresolved conflicts and political tensions of a century and a complacent Gibraltar that the recuperating soldier and the abandoned waif trace their way through the convolutions of life.

Cecil Montegriffo was born in Gibraltar in 1930 and educated in London and Gibraltar in the decade straddling the war years. In 1949, he entered Guy's Hospital Medical School qualifying in medicine in 1955. A busy professional life spanning fifty years, spent mostly in Gibraltar in general medicine and psychiatry followed. An interest in music and literature have been the mainstays of his spirit throughout the half century of his professional cares. The presentation of The Four Walls may be regarded as its inevitable expression. The author, who married his childhood sweetheart in 1959, recently celebrated their fiftieth anniversary with three sons, three daughters-in-law, six grandchildren and extended family.
