Young woman_reading

Featured author for March and new books for the library: the

Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear. Set in late 1920's

England, the series tell the story of Maisie Dobbs, a young female

investigator who has risen above her class. Having survived

WWI, she sets up shop and tackles mysteries, some of which

intertwine with her own past. Maisie is an easy character to cheer for, 

if you read one book in this series, you'll definately want to read more!
