review Maisie Dobbs Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ied her way to Cambridge and served as a nurse in the Great War Maisie has wisdom experience and understanding beyond her years Little does she realise the extent to which this strength of character is soon to be tested For her first case forces her to uncover secrets long buried and t. A neighbor recommended Jacueline Winspear s Maisie Dobbs as one of the best books she s read The book cover boasts uotes from The New York Times Be prepared to be astonished NPR A uirky literary creation and Alexander McCall Smith A real gift Naturally I had high expectationsMaisie Dobbs is a detective and self proclaimed psychologist in post WWI London and the novel splits its time between a case and detailing Maisie s background Only half the book is a mystery as Maisie investigates The Retreat where injured soldiers escape the stares of societyIn the other half Winspear recounts Maisie s past She moves from being a greengrocer s daughter to an aristocrat s prot g to a WWI nurse to a private investigator Maisie Dobbs is almost too good to be true brilliant and dedicated moving seamlessly between all ranks in societyThe book is well written but the split nature of its format backfires Maisie is too perfect to be an appealing heroine although a disturbing scene at the end of the book belies Maisie s perfection And Winspear does not fully develop the mystery so its climax borders on the ridiculousWinspear has written several books in the Maisie Dobbs series Though I haven t read them they are apparently consistent with the genre and concentrate on mysteries and less on Maisie s history I will have to invest in the second novel before dismissing the series completely
