The Peppermint Tea Chronicles
BY ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH POLYGON
This novel is the latest in McCall Smith’s 44 Scotland Street series and is filled with irresistable charm from page one. It follows the lives of the series’ well-loved characters in an intricate web of neighbourly crossovers. I became so deeply immersed in the story that I felt like an additional character in the thick of the plot. McCall Smith writes with such humanity and engagement, maintaining the reputation he has developed as one of the country’s greatest writers.
