I have thoroughly enjoyed Winspear s previous Maisie Dobbs books but I found myself losing patience with Maisie this time aroundPerhaps she is like a friend that I need to distance myself from for a little while I just don t feel like giving her the respect she probably deserves But she is annoying me Big timeShe is so bright and so intuitive but she is starting to feel like a bossy pants and self righteous know it all I wish she d lighten up a bit She has a devilish darling best friend that she never seems to make time for She has a father she adores but only pops in to visit on rare occasions She has a fabulous businessmanVicount lover that she can t uite get enthusiastic about WHYIf she is so darn smart why can t she see that life is good Smell the roses I think Maisie Dobbs just does a bit too much navel gazing I adored the earlier books but this just may be the case of knowing a character too well She was interesting when there were still things to learn about her Now that I am familiar with all her uirks she is far less appealing

This installment seemed of a placeholder or set up for whatever s coming next than a story in its own right There was a still a mystery to be solved one that connected to Maisie s own childhood but the whole book presented itself as a lead up to bigger ominous events to come The Nazi threat is growing and those few who are willing to read the tea leaves are understandably concerned about the possibility of another war but the trade offs get into awfully gray areas ethically Is it permissible to kill one innocent person to protect a secret that may save thousands Interesting to see the direction Maisie s personal life is going as well She s still struggling with the emotional trauma of wartimeMs Winspear still enjoys describing the fashions of the day in great detail but her thorough research seemed to be interwoven into the narrative better than usual The period tidbits didn t stick out uite as much as usual though I appreciated the explanation of the origin of the word hiking a contraction of the hill walking that was so encouraged for exercise and morale boosting after World War I by the British governmentFor book reviews come visit my blog Build Enough Bookshelves
