The Unbearable Lightness of Scones
Alexander McCall Smith's latest book in the 44 Scotland Street series is just as sweet and delightful as the rest of his novels.
In The Unbearable Lightness of Scones, Bertie is still 6 years old, but has a new psychologist. Matthew and Elspeth are newly wed. Angus Lordie gets an unexpected box full of Cyril's progeny - six puppies! Domenica finally resolves her problem of Antonia and the blue Spode teacup, but there's a twist. Lard O'Connor resurfaces with an interesting piece of artwork. And Bruce, horrible, sociopathic Bruce, undergoes a transformation.
