The Librarian Loves …

Selected by Jeanne Goodrich, executive director for the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District.

Maisie Dobbs (Soho Press, 2003) is the first in Jacqueline Winspear’s charming series about a plucky female private investigator who operates in post-World War I England. From her humble beginnings as a housemaid, Maisie’s intelligence, personal drive and perception take her to Cambridge, to France as a war nurse, and ultimately to London, where she opens her own business. Her talents were recognized early on by her employers, who became her benefactors and introduced her to her mentor. The novel is engaging and provides vivid insights into the culture and history of the era in which it’s set.
