The Novel Habits of Happiness

Goodness. Every time I complete the last page of a novel by Alexander McCall Smith, I notice that I have good feelings about humanity. The latest novel in his series featuring protagonist and philosopher Isabel Dalhousie is titled, The Novel Habits of Happiness. Fans of the series will enjoy the updated relationships among a familiar cast of characters, along with some unexpected twists. Isabel is asked to help a woman who is troubled by things that her young son has been saying. While Isabel hesitates to assist this woman, her kindness and goodness leads her to do what she can to help. That theme of goodness provides the opportunity for Smith to develop these characters and reflect on what brings us happiness. Any reader who wants to read a novel to feel good should consider reading this one. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Novel Habits of Happiness from
