A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear
In 1932 England, Masie Dobbs is working not only as an investigator in her own detective agency, but has been sought by the government to an added task; to monitor questionable activities at St. Francis College in Cambridge as a member of the teaching staff. With what we now know of the horrific events of the following years, reading about those who were caught up in the Fascist/Nazi movement is chilling. Masie leads a very regimented life, with a strong work ethic and helping those in her midst who need both emotional as well as financial help. She is rather hesitant in totally giving her heart to love, but desperately wants to find that soul mate. Following Masie through the series shows her continued steadfast strong character and the reader develops a sort of friendship with her and longs for her happiness.
