I've been reading the Maisie Dobbs novels as I stumble across them, so I've read 1-3 and then found this one. I didn't realize that I'd missed 3 books and three years of Maisie's life in between, but apparently I had. However, much of what I missed was foreshadowed in the third book, and Winspear did a credible job catching people up without overwhelming with back story. One of the first three annoyed me with melodrama, but this book, thankfully, lacked that and was a gentle mystery. Nice story, good detail about various subjects, and enough mystery/twists to keep interest without making me want to roll my eyes. Luckily Maisie, who just happens to stumble into so much that helps her with her cases, and who has a grand intuition.
