Making her way with dignity and resolve in English society deeply scared by World War I, Maisie Dobbs' investigations give us moving insight into her time and culture. An unusual degree of integrity underlies Dobb's investigations, as well as a deep commitment to healing her community. Her decency brings a sense of grace and hope to readers--making this exceptionally rewarding reading. This is the first of several fine novels in the series.
