I'm starting to fall out of love with Maisie Dobbs. After reading the latest installment, I find myself waiting for word of the series' end. The way the previous two novels have been gearing up for WWII, I'm just not sure I want to read about Maisie Dobbs in the middle of yet another war. I miss some of the secondary characters like Billy and his family. In all likelihood, I will pick up the next installment just to see if the author decides to go back to some her old ways but I'm not looking forward to it.
