To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose; it is summer in Scotland Street (as it always is) and for the habitués of Edinburgh's favourite street some extraordinary adventures lie in waiting. For the impossibly vain Bruce Anderson - he of the clove-scented hair gel - it may finally be time to settle down, and surely it can only be a question of picking the lucky winner from the hordes of his admirers. The Duke of Johannesburg is keen to take his flight of fancy, a microlite seaplane, from the drawing board to the skies. Big Lou is delighted to discover that her young foster son has a surprising gift for dance but she is faced with big decisions to make on his and her futures. And with Irene now away to pursue her research in Aberdeen, her husband, Stuart, and infinitely long-suffering son, Bertie, are free to play. Stuart rekindles an old friendship over peppermint tea whilst Bertie and his friend Ranald Braveheart Macpherson get more they bargained for from their trip to the circus. And that s just the start ... Take a few minutes to relax with a cup of tea of your favourite tea and savour the affairs of the world in microcosm, teeming with life's loves and challenges. Little dramas writ large by the master chronicler of modern life and manners.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In this thirteenth installment, Bertie has been largely freed from his domineering mother, a development that readers who have seen the evil influence of that mother will welcome…A new Scotland Street will always be a cause for rejoicing.” Booklist (starred review)
“Narrator Robert Ian Mackenzie performs the book in a pleasant tone with effective timing and expression that keep listeners engaged.” AudioFile
“Most of these complications work out fine, and as for the ones that don’t, there’s always next year. Fragrant, refreshing, and soothing as a cup of—well, you know what.” Kirkus Reviews
