    The year is 1933. Maisie Dobbs is contacted by an Indian gentleman who has come to England in the hopes of finding out who killed his sister two months ago. Scotland Yard failed to make any arrest in the case, and there is reason to believe they failed to conduct a thorough investigation. The case becomes even more challenging when another Indian woman is murdered just hours before a scheduled interview. Meanwhile, unfinished business from a previous case becomes a distraction, as does a new development in Maisie's personal life.

    What did you love best about Leaving Everything Most Loved?

    M. Dobbs and her family. All the new characters were so fascinating.


    Have you listened to any of Orlagh Cassidy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listen to almost every book she has narrated. She's the best!.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Maises says goodbye to her lover. I thought is she ever going to marry him? but on the other hand can not wait for the next book about her travels.


    Any additional comments?

    Have read all of Winspears books and traveled several miles to her speak in Corte Madera, CA last year at a book signing. She's one of my favorites. A lovely lady who writes about my favorite time in history..

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    If you could sum up A Game of Thrones in three words, what would they be?

    Adventure, romance intrigue


    What other book might you compare A Game of Thrones to and why?

    This is the first type of book I've read.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I find the lisp disconcerting. Ther are better narrators. When he's doing Varys I shudder.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So many god parts hard to pick one!
