Love over Scotland: A 44 Scotland Street Novel (3)by Alexander Mccall Smith
Synopses & Reviews
The third installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved 44 Scotland Street series is sure to delight his many fans.
This just in from Edinburgh: the complicated lives of the denizens of 44 Scotland Street are becoming no simpler. Domenica Macdonald has left for the Malacca Straits to conduct a perilous anthropological study of pirate households. Angus Lordie’s dog, Cyril, has been stolen, and is facing an uncertain future wandering the streets. Bertie, the prodigiously talented six-year-old, is still enduring psychotherapy, but his burden is lightened by a junior orchestra's trip to Paris, where he makes some interesting new friends. Back in Edinburgh, there is romance for Pat with a handsome young man called Wolf, until she begins to see the attractions of the more prosaically named Matthew.
Teeming with McCall Smith’s wonderful wit and charming depictions of Edinburgh, Love Over Scotland is another beautiful ode to a city and its people that continue to fascinate this astounding author.
The lives of the inhabitants of Edinburgh's 44 Scotland Street continue to be complicated, as Domenica Macdonald heads off on an expedition to the Malacca Straits to study pirates, Angus Lordie's dog Cyril is stolen, musical prodigy Bertie is left behind in Paris during an orchestra tour, and Pat finds herself torn between two very different men. Original. 125,000 first printing.
