Number six in the Scotland Street Series and still has all the McCall Smith charm and ease. A great series.
The Good Book Guide Review. Alexander McCall Smith’s novels should be prescribed by GPs everywhere: reading them would have the most positive impact on the health of the nation, for who will not smile at the author’s observations or laugh out loud at his witticisms? We are back in Edinburgh with the residents of 44, Scotland Street, and while Bertie looks forward to turning seven (a state of mind, his mother tells him), Matthew and Elspeth receive momentous news and Domenica and Angus take a life-changing trip to Tuscany. From the solidity of Agas, to a boy’s yearning for adventure and Irn-Bru – this is, as ever, delightfully diverting entertainment!
~ Karen Howlett
The Importance of Being Seven: 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith
The story of Bertie and his dysfunctional family continues in this sixth instalment alongside the familiar cast of favourites - Big Lou, Domenica, Angus Lordie, Cyril and others - in their daily pursuit of a little happiness. With customary charm and deftness, Alexander McCall Smith has, yet again, given us a clever, witty and utterly delightful new novel.
