The Comforts of a Muddy Saturday

Another pleasant visit with Isabel Dalhousie. The narrator, Davina Porter, is absolutely terrific!

Too insecure!

What happened to the confident Isabel? She was so obsessed with Jamie! This was my least favorite book of the series.

Thought provoking and still thoroughly enjoyable.

Such a pleasure to find an enjoyable novel with well drawn likeable characters wrapped in a philosophical discussion. Isabel ponders ideas we all should consider.
