An Event with Jacqueline Winspear and Her Latest Maisie Dobbs book
We are thrilled to once again welcome Jacqueline Winspear to our virtual stage to talk about the latest book (#16!) in her series of Maisie Dobbs books, The Consequences of Fear. Jacqueline Winspear is well-known and well-loved for her Maisie Dobbs series, which explores the aftermath of World War I through the character of Maisie, who is very much a woman of her generation--women who claimed independence they were reluctant to relinquish once the war ended.
The new novel opens in October 1941, as Europe buckles under Nazi occupation. Maisie is working secretly for the Special Operations Executive, assessing candidates for crucial work with the French resistance. Her two worlds collide when she spots a killer in a place she least expects. She soon realizes she's been pulled into the orbit of a man who has his own reasons to kill--reasons that go back to the last war. As Maisie becomes entangled in a power struggle between Britain's intelligence efforts in France and the work of Free French agents operating across Europe, she must also contend with the lingering question of Freddie Hackett's (the boy who witnessed the murder) state of mind. What she uncovers could hold disastrous consequences for all involved in this compelling chapter of the series that just gets better with every entry.
Jacqueline will talk about the genesis of the new book, and then will take questions from the virtual audience, as time allows.
The event will take place on Zoom on Wednesday, March 31st, at 5:30 pm Pacific Time.
