“Slower reading (not as suspenseful) than the first two Maisie Dobbs books, but still enjoyable.”Mae wrote this review Thursday, April 15, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I bought this book at a discount to have some bedtime book to read.
it turned out much more. The amount of details from the post world one era is interesting, so is the way she builds personalities. At some points one feels that this is not more of a new writer trying too hard to portray the story in our minds. Also there's this thing about most books talking about the past. The characters are wearing the date but they don't actually behave the way people behaved during that time. True that the inacceptability of homosexuality in that time is clear in the book. but in many other ways Maisie and other characters think according to our time's way of thinking, a pity really. Another a bit annoying thing is how things come out of the blue to change the logical path of events. Especially the ending. I was really annoyed at this discovery about the real person threatening maisie.. totally frustrating.
All in all, I'm glad I have no feelings: good or bad, towards this book.”
“Another great addition to the "Maisie Dobbs" series. If you like Agatha Christie, you'll enjoy Jacqueline Winspear.”Haworth wrote this review Friday, March 12, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The suspense is really killing the reader in this book. I could not read fast enough, had to read ahead and finally I could not take it anymore and had to read the end when half way, even though I had promised myself not to do so. I of course still finished to book since the end did not mean anything without everything between the covers.
The first book was really good, the second better and this one is even better than that one. In this book Maisie has to handle three cases at the same time. She is really forced to deal with her past and WWI memories when she on account of two clients have to go over to France and find two dead soldiers' resting places and details around their deaths. Everything is not the way it seems. She encounters an MP that sits in a wheelchair which he ought not to, someone tries to kill her four times and she is also painfully close to the spirit world in other ways than through that, her old tutor is not who she thought he was and this causes friction between them. And the budding love story with country doctor Andrew Dene continues at a very slow pace. I can hardly wait for the next novel to arrive in my mail box! I love these books. ”
