Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear
Maisie is a sharp, independent young woman who serves as a housemaid. Her employers recognize these qualities in her and through their encouragement and financial support Maisie pursues her education. When World War 1 breaks out, Maisie enlists to serve as a nurse. After the war, Maisie takes over her mentor’s private investigation agency.

Wait awhile in the stillness, and do not rush to conclusions, no matter how uncomfortable the unknowing.”
Maisie’s first case seems to be a simple one of proving infidelity but turns out to be much more and involves Maisie’s own past.
“… “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings
and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.””
