The Quiet Side of Passion

Intervention. The twelfth novel in the Isabel Dalhousie series by Alexander McCall Smith is titled, The Quiet Side of Passion. Isabel is working too hard: as a philosopher, as a Mom, and for her niece, Cat, for free at the cafĂ©. With Jamie’s encouragement, Isabel gets help from two women: one to help care for the house, and the other to help edit the Review of Applied Ethics. Through her son, Charlie, Isabel meets a woman named Patricia and learns things that make Isabel want to intervene to set things right. All the developing relationships are interesting, and there are consequences that must be faced on multiple fronts. All in all, this is a delightful installment in a series that I’ve liked reading. I always feel better about human behavior after spending time with Isabel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Quiet Side of Passion from
