Maisie Dobbs: The Adult Nancy Drew
On another level, Maisie Dobbs is a woman ahead of her time. She leaves Nancy in the dust when it come to womens' lib. While Nancy relies on her father and housekeeper, Maisie is essentially a woman on her own. Part of the pleasure in reading these novels is watching her evolution as an woman battling against the male- dominate and class-conscience society of the time. Kudos to author, Jacqueline Winspear!
PS...some of these are available in bundles of two novels on Kindle.
