Once again, narrator Orlagh Cassidy steps into the formidable shoes of Maisie Dobbs, who is asked to look into the disappearance of the son of a local pub owner. Winspear makes palpable the emotional world of 1940s England, where families are still healing the wounds of WWI and now facing the horrors of sending sons off to WWII. Cassidy's accent, tone, and pace are well tuned to Maisie's strong and empathetic character. Cassidy draws on her full palette of British accents to differentiate a large cast of secondary characters, male and female, old and young. Listeners new to the series may be challenged to understand the complex relationships but be inspired to go back to the beginning of the series.
