Publisher's Summary

With his characteristic warmth, inventiveness and brilliant wit, Alexander McCall Smith gives us more of the gloriously entertaining comings and goings at 44 Scotland Street, the Edinburgh townhouse. Six-year-old prodigy Bertie perseveres in his heroic struggle for truth and balanced good sense against his insufferable mother and her crony, the psychotherapist Dr Fairbairn, going as far as to make a short-lived bid for freedom on a trip to Paris with the Edinburgh youth orchestra. Domenica sets off on an anthropological odyssey with pirates in the Malacca Straits, while Pat attracts several handsome admirers, including a toothsome suitor named Wolf. And Big Lou, eternal source of coffee and good advice to her friends, has love, heartbreak and erstwhile boyfriend Eddie's misdemeanours on her own mind.

An enjoyable read

This is a delightful, funny and thoughtful story. The reader does a wonderful job. The large and small events in the characters' lives give them and the reader an opportunity to reflect on the larger question of how to be a good human being.

2017 challenge

Last year I listened to all the Cazalets. This year I'm on the Scotland St series. It's fun and entertaining but I do wish it had the same narration as Blythe Duff on book one made it so real.
It's a fun series and I'm enjoying it. Especially as I bought them all in the 40% off sale!
