              INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER As Europe buckles under Nazi occupation, Maisie Dobbs investigates a possible murder that threatens devastating repercussions for Britain's war efforts in this latest installment in the New York Times bestselling mystery series. October 1941. Whi...le on a delivery, young Freddie Hackett, a message runner for a government office, witnesses an argument that ends in murder. Crouching in the doorway of a bombed-out house, Freddie waits until the coast is clear. But when he arrives at the delivery address, he's shocked to come face to face with the killer. Dismissed by the police when he attempts to report the crime, Freddie goes in search of a woman he once met when delivering a message: Maisie Dobbs. While Maisie believes the boy and wants to help, she must maintain extreme caution: she's working secretly for the Special Operations Executive, assessing candidates for crucial work with the French resistance. Her two worlds collide when she spots the 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 state of mind. What she uncovers could hold disastrous consequences for all involved in this compelling chapter of the series that seems to get better with every entry (Wall Street Journal).

              A one-of-a-kind illustrated companion to the best-selling Maisie Dobbs series, which invites readers into the beloved heroine's world--and shares her wisdom and inspiration. Through fourteen books, the Maisie Dobbs series has had a resounding impact on fans. Readers have shared w...ith author Jacqueline Winspear how Maisie's stories have resonated with them or helped them through difficult times. Fans have been inspired by the heroine's resilience and endurance, repurposing her strength in their own lives in a way perhaps best embodied by the phrase What Would Maisie Do? Anchored by thirty of Maisie's most timeless quotes, coupled with Jacqueline Winspear's inspiration for each nugget of wisdom, these reflections offer readers additional insight into the world of Maisie Dobbs and invite them to reflect on favorite moments and memories. Here are just a few: On the value of respect: Liking a person we are required to have dealings with is not of paramount importance. But respect is crucial, on both sides, as is tolerance and a depth of understanding of those influences that sculpt a character. On grieving: Grief is a pilgrimage along a path that allows us to reflect upon the past from points of remembrance held in the soul. At times the way is filled with stones underfoot and we feel pained by our memories, yet on other days the shadows reflect our longing and those happinesses shared. On the importance of departure: Leaving that which you love breaks your heart open. But you will find a jewel inside, and this precious jewel is the opening of your heart to all that is new and all that is different, and it will be the making of you--if you allow it to be. The perfect supplement to the Maisie Dobbs series, What Would Maisie Do? also features the iconic jacket art that has graced the series, as well as period photographs and prompts for readers' own observations and inspiration--making this a unique journal that fans will turn to and treasure for years to come.

              Following a childhood of parental abuse, and subsequent homelessness, Nancy Davenport went on to graduate from UCLA Phi Beta Kappa, later receiving her Master's Degree in Social Work. An accomplished poet and artist, she dedicated her life to counseling children and families affe...cted by child abuse. While writing this memoir, Nancy was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. Suddenly faced with devastating illness, she became determined to complete this work in order to spread her message that child abuse is as likely to be found in a mansion as in a mobile home. Eternal Improv is an inspiring work of profound courage and hope. 'What an accomplishment! Nancy Davenport's searing, raw, witty account of a deeply disturbing childhood and brave escape from an abusive father is marked by the wisdom of reflection and the grace of forgiveness. Rising above homelessness and starvation to achieve academic and professional success against tremendous odds, Nancy has written her memoir while struggling daily to live with the invasive consequences of Lou Gehrig's disease. Completing this book demonstrates a strength beyond words, for as she has lost her ability to speak, so her voice booms from the page."-Jacqueline Winspear, author of Maisie Dobbs, Birds Of A Feather, and Pardonable Lies 'Nancy Davenport's recollections reveal a writer with a clear eye, a dry wit, and a crusty, resilient spirit. Reading them makes the heart ache."-Linda Hunt, Academy Award-winning actress 'Nancy Davenport writes about her childhood abuse, homelessness and debilitating disease without ever dipping into self-pity, victimhood or easy platitudes. Her memoir crackles with wit, irony and wisdom. It's a story of something all too rare in today's world: courage."-Barbara Abercrombie, Instructor in the UCLA Extension Writers' Program and author of Writing Out the Storm

              In the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series, a series of possible attacks on British pilots leads Jacqueline Winspear's beloved heroine Maisie Dobbs into a mystery involving First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. October 1942. Jo Hardy, a 22-year-old ferry pilot, is... delivering a Supermarine Spitfire--the fastest fighter aircraft in the world--to Biggin Hill Aerodrome, when she realizes someone is shooting at her aircraft from the ground. Returning to the location on foot, she finds an American serviceman in a barn, bound and gagged. She rescues the man, who is handed over to the American military police; it quickly emerges that he is considered a suspect in the disappearance of a fellow soldier who is missing. Tragedy strikes two days later, when another ferry pilot crashes in the same area where Jo's plane was attacked. At the suggestion of one of her colleagues, Jo seeks the help of psychologist and investigator Maisie Dobbs. Meanwhile, Maisie's husband, a high-ranking political attache based at the American embassy, is in the thick of ensuring security is tight for the first lady of the United States, Eleanor Roosevelt, during her visit to the Britain. There's already evidence that German agents have been circling: the wife of a president represents a high value target. Mrs. Roosevelt is clearly in danger, and there may well be a direct connection to the death of the woman ferry pilot and the recent activities of two American servicemen. To guarantee the safety of the First Lady--and of the soldier being held in police custody--Maisie must uncover that connection. At the same time, she faces difficulties of an entirely different nature with her young daughter, Anna, who is experiencing wartime struggles of her own.
