Maisie Dobbs isn't just any young housemaid. Through her own natural intelligence - and the patronage of her benevolent employers - she works her way into college at Cambridge. After the War I and her service as a nurse, Maisie hangs out her shingle back at home: M. DOBBS, TRADE AND PERSONAL INVESTIGATIONS. But her very first assignment soon reveals a much deeper, darker web of secrets, which will force Maisie to revisit the horrors of the Great War and the love she left behind.

I really enjoyed this book. It left me wanting more. The narration was wonderful and brought the story to life.

Oh I am given more space hear good,anyway.This book has taught me things I will never forget . I love the relationships Mery experienced and the fears and problems she faced. I could not stop listening. this book was frightful, encouraging, pushing to get its thoughts out, never have I experienced such romance, and the jokes were divine, you do like my large vocabulary I've been working on it, but that's not the point. A book so he as this should be honored and set to be read, and yes reading is an honorable thing. I really liked the letters and my only complaint is that they didn't do the hole betrothal thing in front of the king. I really hope I not completely screw up this review thing and thank you Shannon Hale fore writing your books and the appreciation of books inside this book it was touching, man I really seem to like books whare the authers name starts with Shannon. Now since I've been writing to long and must end I will now end...
