Jacqueline Winspear-TICKETED EVENT

Beloved author Jacqueline Winspear has finished her last Maisie Dobbs book, The Comfort of Ghosts, and we're pleased to welcome her back to Broadway Books to read from and discuss it!

The series of eighteen books takes Maisie Dobbs, a thoughtful and resilient protagonist, from adolescence into mature adulthood during two world wars. In The Comfort of Ghosts, the final book in the series, psychologist and investigator Maisie Dobbs visits a vacant Belgravia mansion whose owners fled while London was under heavy Luftwaffe bombing in 1945. She finds four adolescent orphans with a dark wartime history and a demobilized soldier-- gravely ill and reeling from his experiences overseas--who has taken shelter with the group. Maisie's quest to bring comfort to the youngsters and the ailing soldier brings to light a decades-old mystery concerning Maisie's first husband, James Compton, who was killed while piloting an experimental fighter aircraft. As Maisie unravels the threads of her dead husband's life, she is forced to examine her own painful past and question beliefs she has always accepted as true.


This is a ticketed event: each pre-ordered (from Broadway Books) copy of The Comfort of Ghosts acts as a ticket. You can pre-order a copy online, in the store, or over the phone: 503-284-1726.
