The series set after World War I are very interesting reads for me. Maisie Dobbs worked in France during the war as a nurse so the flashbacks are also indicative of what her work during the war involved. This particular book involves three separate mysteries of missing people - all missing in action so to speak and whose families in one way or another seek closure.
The results of Maisie's investigations are intriguing. You knew at the beginning that it is what not it seemed. No one had actually died the way the way they said (otherwise there would have been no mystery!) but the tale is very interesting and what transpires on the way and how it gets actually solved is what is good.
Maisie is not just part of an investigation here. In this story she also forms very much part of the emotional side of the story as she becomes personally involved in many ways. I did not care much for the psychic side of Maisie but then you cannot have everything.
This is a series involving Maisie Dobbs and I would certainly like to read more. The fact that I read this book in a large font made it so much easier on the eye as well.
I like this series quite a lot, though I'm terribly behind (as usual!). I must find this one now.ReplyDelete
I read this book first although I believe it's actually the third and was very confused. I know that I need to start from the beginning and then I think everything will fall into place.ReplyDelete
This is one series I've wanted to read *forever!*. I so love the time period!ReplyDelete
Not sure I'd be keen on the psychic part though either. I like those kinds of books, but when it comes to mysteries I like everything firmly grounded in reality.
On the list Mystica!ReplyDelete
Like you I am not fond of 'clairvoyance'but none the less, it peaked my interest (and by the by, I quite agree about the large print! Think we are getting on and such?)
All the best,
I read a couple of the Maisie books and enjoyed them a lot. They are light enough that they don't make me tense reading them but have enough mystery to keep things interesting.ReplyDelete
I dearly love these books, and have the two latest waiting for me.ReplyDelete
I've only read one of the Maisie books and it was a recent one... which left me a bit confused. I'm going to go back to the beginning and start there one of these days.ReplyDelete
I adore this series, though I haven't read this book yet.ReplyDelete
I've only read one book in this series so far, but I definitely want to revisit it.ReplyDelete
