Book Review: “The Mapping of Love and Death” by Jacqueline Winspear (2010)
Book 7 in the Maisie Dobbs series. I was in a reading lull and this book was just what I needed to get back in the groove. The Maisie Dobbs books are like a favorite cotton shirt that I love to wear but need to quickly run the iron over first.
Maisie can be a bit aloof, but she’s got a good heart and 1932 London is a rich backdrop for this tale of murder and sleuthing.

Book Review: “The Submission” by Amy Waldman (2011)
This is a fictional account of what might happen if a blind jury established to pick the design for the 9/11 memorial selects a design by a Muslim American.
Thought-provoking storyline that tells the stories of several characters. Brought to mind several elements of the conflict surrounding the NY mosque near ground zero. Wonder how far we’ve really come. . .
