Publisher's Summary

The debut of one of literature's favorite sleuths! 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, seemingly an ordinary infidelity case, 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.

    "amazingly well-written!"

    I'm lacking words to explain how much I enjoyed listening to this author's novel. I was taken away to another world with every word. This is an excellent read/listen for anyone. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons talk by each character throughout each story. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    Story
    "Tenderhearted wartime tale"

    Heroic Miss Dobbs is a great character, worth knowing. Agony of war including its permanent wounds, expressed frankly yet sensitively. Well done.

    Story
    "Bad"
    What would have made Maisie Dobbs better?

    Story was extremely slow moving. Narrator voice could put me to sleep.


    What was most disappointing about Jacqueline Winspear’s story?

    The premise sounded like it had promise but poorly written.

    "Maisie Dobbs"

    would recommend the story and likely to read more of the titles. Problem with recording skipping in a few chapters, enjoyed the reader.

    "Great Historical Mystery Series"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the Maisie Dobbs series. The series is set in England just after World War I. This book introduces the character of Maisie and follows her as she solves a great mystery. The books do a nice job of weaving together historical information, mysterious circumstances, and social commentary. Great for readers who enjoy cozy mysteries and historical fiction!
