When asked by Entertainment Weekly, “What book does your whole family love?” Chelsea Clinton replied, “We all love the Maisie Dobbs series. Jacqueline Winspear’s protagonist is indomitable and vulnerable, brilliant and kind.” (March 2018)

The Richmond-Times Dispatch says: “Winspear, whose work combines realistic historical plots with lovely, unobtrusive prose, has won numerous awards, and rightly so. Each character is fashioned with care, and Maisie — whose history Winspear has revealed in this book’s predecessors — grows even more richly developed with each installment. A woman acquainted with sorrow but one who has emerged from its debilitating darkness, she possesses presence, rectitude and bravery that reflect the glory of her creator’s decency and grace. A novel that appeals equally to the intellect and the emotions, To Die But Once advances Maisie’s engaging story and reaffirms Winspear’s eminence in her field.”
