Leaving Everything Most Loved: a Maisie Dobbs Novel is written by Jacqueline Winspear. The Title is Book #10 of the Maisie Dobbs series.
The year is 1933.
Maisie Dobbs investigates the murder of Indian immigrants in London. There is also unfinished business from a previous case of a missing/runaway boy. Billy is offered a new job as is Sandra, and Maisie is faced with a new development in her relationship with James Compton.
A cultural and historical mystery, the attention to detail in these years ‘between the wars’ in London is extraordinary.
These books are very emotionally charged, yet I feel very calm while reading them. The empathy, the compassion and the wisdom that Maisie Dobbs exudes is very thought-provoking, uplifting and satisfying.
I am a huge fan of this series. ***** ( )

Maisie has been becoming restless but takes on a case for an Indian gentleman who wants to have the murderer of his sister found. The brother and Maisie come to the conclusion that the police did not make a thorough investigation because of the victim's background. As Maisie digs deeper, a friend of the victim also is murdered so Maisie knows that the conclusions of the police were erroneous and the deaths are far from simple.

While Maisie pursues the case she is also making decisions about her personal journey in life. Seeing her reflections and decision making efforts help carry her forward to a remarkable end.

Maisie is a tremendous character and it is amazing to watch her growth. ( )

Masie Dobbs is asked to look into the murder of an Indian woman by her grieving brother, who has arrived from India some months after the event. Indeed, Maisie is somewhat unhappy with the fact that the murder occurred two months previously and that Scotland Yard had done next to nothing in terms of investigating the death; after all, their thinking seems to have been, Indian women aren’t English in spite of the continuing Empire control of that country! Before too long, though, Maisie has more than a few suspects, along with a missing person and another murder on her hands…. If one didn’t know that the series continues beyond this, the 10th novel in the Maisie Dobbs series, it would be quite reasonable to assume that this is the last book, given developing events in Maisie’s personal and professional life; indeed, a fair amount of time is spent in tying up loose ends, making arrangements for future work and other “end of series” storylines. That said, the pursuit of the truth in solving the murder leads Maisie to many new ways of thinking, and it was a joy for me as a reader to see her character develop and grow in that way. One thing I like about this series is the focus on Maisie’s psychological self-awareness and growth (although I understand that this can seem like navel-gazing to some readers), and this entry in the series emphasizes that aspect of the novels more than most; recommended!

This was less about solving a murder than about Maisie's need to leave everything most loved. But thankfully as she'll be back as I would miss her terribly. ( )

The family, that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor in our innermost hearts never quite wish to.

--Dodie Smith
You shall leave everything loved most dearly, and this is the shaft of which the bow of exile shoots first. You shall prove how salt is the taste of another man's bread and how hard is the way up and down another man's stairs.

--Dante, Paradiso
All the people like us are We, and everyone else is They.

--Rudyard Kipling, "We and They"
I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can.

--Beryl Markham, West With The Night
