Leaving Everything Most Loved

Posted on 04.10.2013

Jacqueline Winspear’s “Leaving Everything Most Loved” is a suspenseful  book about murder. Maisie Dobbs is a psychologist and a private detective in London. The book is set in the year 1933, after World War I, with the threat of another war.  An Indian immigrant by the  name of  Ursha Pramal has been murdered, and everyone is wondering, “Who killed her?” Ursha’s brother has entered London to find who murdered his beloved sister. He petitions for the police to give her case a fair investigation, which they fail to do. Enter Dobbs, whom her brother has hired to conduct a complete investigation that the police will not. Winspear writes in a very sophisticated and descriptive manner. While reading this novel, I felt engrossed in the plot, like I experienced the events of the story myself. The book is a tad lengthy, and parts may need to be re-read to keep up with the twists Winspear tosses in, but I guarantee this novel is one you will not be able to put down until you are finished.
