TSS: Missing Maisie
Ah, we have come to the end of the road, at last. I have read all there is to tell, thus far, about Miss Dobbs and though I am very sure that there will be more coming from her creator, it will be quite some time, I fear.
What shall I do until then? Well, I was looking through my stack, last night and it appears that I shall not be missing Maisie all that much, anyway. I’ve got a fun filled tale about World War II Fly Girls and a deeper story about an affluent Jewish family in Czechoslovakia right around the time Hitler ran away with the Sudetenland.
Ok, so neither are Maisie but they will help fill in the time period gaps with something of a bit more substance and slightly different fare than she usually offers up. Also on deck, I have another European tale of adventure by the very young and brilliant Téa Obreht. She’s the first of my Orange Short List writers to read and I’m pretty pumped to get started!
That’s about it. A short holiday post but I was feeling a bit weepy. I think I’ve managed to pump myself up, enough, in leaving Maisie behind. However, if you do run across anything “Maisie-like”, do send it my way!
