January 17, 2023 (meeting one week late because second Tuesday is so soon after the Holidays) -
We will start the year with a mystery, Maise Dobbs, by Jacqueline Winspear, to be led by Jane Rousseau. This is the first book in a series of novels about English private eye Maise Dobbs, a former maid and nurse on the frontlines of WWI who makes her way in London in the 20s and 30s. While the Memphis and Germantown libraries have many of the later books in the series, I just noticed they have none of the original book, which is the best one to read first! However, I am providing Jane with my copy and I have purchased 6 additional used ones (only @ $4 each -- no one need pay me) and will bring them to church as soon as they come for in, for whoever needs one. (Others may want to buy one on their own -- they are widely available on-line, used and new.)
