I've read and enjoyed this series. This one includes the involvement of Bess's parents which brings them out of the background and makes Bess a partner in solving the case. All in all a fun read.
I've missed Maisie and was so glad to have her back. Having said that, I miss her return to solving cases as she has in the past. However, we see how strong she is to suffer all the sorrows she has and to find a new, perhaps short lived, purpose in her life.
Additionally, Maisie would not be Maisie without the narration of Orlagh Cassidy.
All in all glad to have her back and I look forward to more.
At last Daniel stops being a pompous ass and accepts Mollie's help. About time! Another great story in the series.
I've really enjoyed this series. They are very well written with a great deal of character and plot development. I've really grown to like Roy Grace and the other series characters.
I am only a 3 and a half hours in but oh my this is boring!! I'm moving on to something else. Maybe I'll come back and hope it will actually be interesting.
I've read all of this series and I think this one was the best. It filled a void I didn't even know I'd missed. We see a young Rutledge before the war that permanently changes him. An intriguing mystery and a glimpse of how Ian's life could have been without the horror or war.
I started this book but ended up returning it. Maybe it gets better later but I got really turned off by the gruesome violence. I also do not care for the reader.
This is a sort of interesting book but too wordy. And, I love coffee but I don't need to hear all the details. I'll keep the author on my list but it'll take awhile before I listen to another. Too many other better authors out there. Good narration though.
I looked forward to the final book of the trilogy. This one was interesting but not as good as the first two. However, because the "history" in this book occurred during my lifetime, I enjoyed relating to what the characters were experiencing.
As some reviewers have mentioned, Follett gets a little preachy sometimes and there are way too many graphic sex scenes. But all in all I recommend this book if you have already read the first two.
I've listened to both books in the series. Not bad. Good stories. I don't care so much for the narrator because I don't like how she does men's voices. She makes every man sound unpleasant and grouchy. Nonetheless, I'll listen again when there's another book in the series.
It was a good listen,probably true to what those who lived through WWI experienced. I really hope, though, that we get more Maisie Dobbs stories from Ms. Winspear.
