Forgotten affairs of youth

The Forgotten Affairs of Youth by Alexander McCall Smith (Recorded Books, LLC, 2011).

This latest installment of the Isabel Dalhousie series seemed much meatier than the previous one (“The Charming Quirks of Others”). I wonder if it made a difference that I listened to it, rather than reading the print? When you’re listening, you can’t skip over stuff. The moral conflicts that Isabel faces in this book seem more complex and less easily solved, and perhaps more personal. Now that Charlie is 2 years old, the meaning of family has become an important question in Isabel’s life. The good news is that she does, at long last, get married in the end. Now that she has her happy ending, will there be more books in the series? Only time will tell.
