Originally from the United Kingdom, she divides her time between California and the Pacific Northwest.


"Over 16 novels spanning three decades, Winspear's Maisie Dobbs has lived. In real life, her quiet bravery, compassion and dogged pursuit of the truth would have made her one of the Greatest Generation, a lesson in survival under the grimmest circumstances. The lessons are hard-won in The Consequences of Fear, set in the fall of 1941 but no less relevant today.... Fans and newcomers to the series will root for Dobbs and the other well-drawn characters."--Los Angeles Times
"Exceptional.... An intriguing series that entertains and inspires.... Winspear's latest novel reminds us why we love Maisie Dobbs." --Washington Post
Once again, Ms. Winspear brings a vanished era to life with clarity and insight. Maisie Dobbs--businesswoman, widow, single mother of an adopted little girl, lady-friend of a dashing American diplomat--continues to mature and impress in her admirable mission to balance the scales of justice. --Wall Street Journal
"Fresh and compelling.... Winspear's sense of place is acutely evocative of wartime England's fears and hopes. Dobbs remains a particularly strong and well-crafted character, with a compelling back story; the same can be said for her devoted friends, family and colleagues."--Seattle Times
Gripping.--Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Outstanding.... Maisie and her loving family of supporting characters continue to evolve and grow in ways sure to win readers' hearts. Winspear is writing at the top of her game."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
A fast-paced tale of mystery and spycraft whose exploration of inner doubts and fears makes it much more. --Kirkus
"Like Winspear's other novels, this one explores the characters' minds, examining not only the facts but also the human psyche. VERDICT: A must-read for Maisie Dobbs fans, this is an excellent fit for readers of historical and thoughtful mysteries."--Library Journal
"Fast-paced . . . Winspear never sugarcoats the horrors of war, and alongside the camaraderie shown by these characters and the Londoners surrounding them she delivers terrible truths that must be endured. . . . also recommend it as a less- weighty read-alike for Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See."--Booklist, starred review
