The first book in a mystery series of the same name, set in post-WWI England.

Gosh, I wanted to really like this book after liking To Die But Once earlier this year, but it was all kinda "meh" for me. I think a large part of my unenthusiasm was that it's really more about Maisie's experiences as a child and then in WWI than about any actual mystery. Her historical backstory is bookended by what felt more like a mystery frame than a mystery story to me, and I found it all weakly motivated. This may be one of those series where the first book has maximal resonance only once you're deeply invested in the series. ( )

This book was a blend of historical fiction and historical mystery. The historical fiction centered around the First World War and its aftermath. This part did a great job of showing the terrible consequences of the war and how it affected people for a long time after. The story of Maisie's life and how she came to be a detective was very entertaining. The mystery part was also well-written and moved along at a good pace. My only quibble is that I could not understand or follow the logic of how Maisie decided to investigate the mystery or how she even knew it was a mystery in the first place (bad editing, maybe?) The characters in the book were well developed although I did find the of one or two of them to be a tad exaggerated. This is the beginning of series worth following. ( )

I enjoyed this. I like Maisie and her friends. I expect I'll read more of the series.

Maisie Dobbs is billed as a mystery. It contains a private investigator, an wife accused of adultery, and (gasp!) a potential murder. However, the length of the mystery is about one quarter of its entire novel.

Jacqueline Winspear has written a period piece, beautiful and terrible in its setting, with a minor mystery wedged in there to keep the plot moving forward at a decent clip. Well worth reading. ( )

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.
afegit per khuggard | editaSchool Library Journal
 
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.

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.

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)
