Best Jacqueline Winspear Books

Jacqueline Winspear wrote bestselling books that had World War I touch. Three of her award-winning masterpieces are:

Maisie Dobbs (#1):
In 2003, Jacqueline Winspear starting to write her first mystery book entitled Maisie Dobbs. The main character is a private detective in England around 1910-1929, named Maisie Dobbs. Her character was beautifully portrayed and welcomed generally by a lot of critics.

Maisie Dobbs isn’t only any youthful housemaid. Through her own regular insight—and the support of her kind bosses—she works her way into school at Cambridge. At the point when World War I breaks out, Maisie goes to the front as a medical caretaker. It is there that she discovers that unexpected events are important and the truth elusive. Dobbs then sets up alone as a private agent after the World War. Yet, her first mission, apparently a customary betrayal case, soon uncovers a much more profound, darker web of secrets, which will compel Maisie to return to the horrors she experienced in the war and the love she deserted.

The Care and Management of Lies The ties between Kezia Marchant and Thea Brissenden, companions since girlhood, have gotten to be strained on July 1914, —by Thea’s energetic grasp of ladies’ suffrage, and by the inescapable marriage of Kezia to Thea’s sibling, Tom, who runs the family farm. When Kezia and Tom married only a month prior to the war announced between Britain and Germany, Thea’s blessing to Kezia is a book on family administration—a hidden feedback of the lady’s mundane life to come. However when Tom enlists himself to battle for his nation and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the front line, the ranch becomes Kezia’s duty. Each must figure out how to persevere through the resulting disturbance and turmoil.

As Tom walks to the front lines, and Kezia fights to keep her organized life from disentangling, they shroud their hopelessness in letters and cards loaded with stories woven to bring solace. Indeed, even Tom’s kindred officers in the trenches enter and discover comfort in the fantasy world of Kezia’s mouth-watering, fanciful dinners. But, will falsehoods and self-deception be useful when they encounter the adversary?

Messenger of Truth (Maisie Dobbs #4): In this fourth series of Maisie Dobbs, she-as private investigator-researches the strange demise of a controversial craftsman—and World War I veteran.

It was set in London in 1931. A dubious craftsman named Nick Bassington-Hope (a World War I veteran) tumbles to his death, one night prior to the presentation of his work of art at a renowned worldwide Mayfair exhibition. And although, the police run it a mishap, Nick’s twin sister, Georgina, a wartime writer, isn’t persuaded. She then sought out Maisie Dobb for help.
