Isabel Dalhousie is my favourite character of all those created by Alexander McCall Smith. I have been hanging out so long for this next novel in the series - this is the tenth - and now I'm so disappointed that I've devoured it.
Gentleness, kindness, and acute observations are all part of this series,
as well as the minutiae of a loving relationship. It is a joy to experience. I suspect I'll soon be re-reading past books in this series, starting at the beginning again, if only to bolster my faith in good people.
