But Isabel Dalhousies peaceful idyll is broken when a single meeting over coffee with fellow philosopher Dr. George McLeod brings an irate phone call from his wife, Roz, who implacably accuses Isabel of conducting an affair with her husband.Wounded by the injustice of Rozs wild allegation and concerned both for her standing among the gossipy group of her scholarly peers and for Rozs apparent state of hysteria, Isabel sets out to discover more about the McLeods, and to set the record straight before the bitterness in their marriage poisons her own reputation. For insight into the McLeods relationship she turns to Millie, who is both an old acquaintance of Isabels and a university colleague of Georges.In this engaging, intelligently observed story, Alexander McCall Smiths sharp-eyed heroine is reminded once again to avoid jumping to hasty conclusions about the lives of others, and to value friendship wherever its found.
