Maisie Dobbs

Winspear, Jacqueline

Maisie Dobbs got her starat as a maid in an aristocratic London household when she was thirteen. her employer, suffragette Lady Rowan Compton, soon became her patron, taking the remarkably bright youngster under her wing. Lady Rowan's friend, Maurice Blanche, often retained as an investigator by the European elite, recognized Maisie's intuitive gifts and helped her earn admission to the prestigious Girton College in Cambridge, where Maisie planned to complete her education. The outbreak of war changed everything.Maisie trained as a nurse, then left for France to serve at the Front, where she found - and lost - an important part of herself. Ten years after the Armistice, in 1929, Maisie sets out on her own as a private investigator, one who has learned that coincidences are meaningful, and truth elusive. Her very first case involves suspected infidelity but reveals something different.
