I wish I could give 4.5 stars because this was simply wonderful. Nice mixture of history, back story and mystery :-) ( )
  knittinkitties | Aug 23, 2021 |
This was a nice, solid three-star read, not as much murdering and detecting as I'd hoped, and the prose suffered in comparison with the Pat Barker I'd read recently; however, overall, it was a pleasant reading experience.

And then the ending. I really don't know what to think about the confrontation between Maisie and the baddie... she defeats him by... really? Oh, and I wasn't really a fan of the big emotional scene at the end of the book where Maisie's pain is so much greater, apparently because her name is the one on the cover, but I'd sort of been expecting something like that.

Such a sad and somber tone to this book set as it is in the years after World War I. ( )
  Stephen.Lawton | Aug 7, 2021 |
In this first of the series we are introduced to Maisie Dobbs, and intertwined with a mystery we have the history of her life. Her upbringing, what and how her life is changed and her experiences as a nurse during the Great War. All lead her to set up as an investigator.
An interesting read especially have read a few already in the series. ( )
  Vesper1931 | Jul 29, 2021 |
I don't remember why I bailed on this book other than it was boring me to tears, but I can confirm to myself that YES I really did try to read it in 2020 and that the plan is now to see if the BFF in L.A. is interested in reading it.

A strong protagonist and a lively sense of time and place carry readers along, and the details lead to further thought and understanding about the futility and horror of war, as well as a desire to hear more of Maisie. This is the beginning of a series, and a propitious one at that.

For a clever and resourceful young woman who has just set herself up in business as a private investigator, Maisie seems a bit too sober and much too sad.

Now, he will spend a few sick years in institutes,
And do what things the rules consider wise,
And take whatever pity may dole.
Tonight he noticed how the women's eyes
Passed from him to the strong men that were whole.
How cold and late it is! Why don't they come
And put him to bed? Why don't they come?

Final verse "Disabled" by Wilfred Owen. It was drafted at Craiglockhart, a hospital for shell-shocked officers, in October 1917. Owen was killed on November 4, 1918, just one week before the armistice.

This book is dedicated to the memory of my paternal grandfather and my maternal grandmother.

Even if she hadn't been the last person to walk through the turnstile at Warren Street tube station, Jack Barker would have noticed the tall, slender woman in the navy blue, thigh-length jacket with a matching pleated skirt short enough to reveal a well-turned ankle.
Citat

In seeking to fill your mind, I omitted to instruct you in the opposite exercise. This small book is for your daily writings, when the day is newborn and before you embark upon the richness of study and intellectual encounter. My instruction, Maisie, is to simply write a page each day. There is no set subject, save that which the waking mind has held close in sleep.
"Lord Compton has received word from the War Office that our horses are to be inspected for service this week.... I *cannot* let them go. I don't want to be unpatriotic, but they are my hunters." ... "Lady Compton. Our sympathies. The country needs one hundred and sixty-five thousand horses, but we need them to be fit, strong and able to be of service on the battlefield."
... the veil that was lifted in the early hours, of the all-seeing eye that was open before the day was awake. The hours before dawn were the sacred time, before the intellect rose from slumber. At this time one's inner voice could be heard. (p. 25)
... consider the nature of a mask. We all have our masks ... (p. 223)
