Historical Fiction Mystery - The American Agent by Jacqueline Winspear Moderator: Lynn Bishop
To avoid a holiday (and the races) we moved it to the SECOND Wednesday. http://jacquelinewinspear.com/books/american-agent/. Maisie Dobbs, Psychologist and Investigator, began her working life at the age of thirteen as a servant in a Belgravia mansion, only to be discovered reading in the library by her employer, Lady Rowan Compton. Fearing dismissal, Maisie is shocked when she discovers that her thirst for education is to be supported by Lady Rowan and a family friend, Dr. Maurice Blanche.
