Publisher's Summary

From a small town outside Edinburgh comes the news that a young boy has been recounting vivid recollections of a past life: a perfect description of an island off the coast of Scotland which he couldn't possibly know and a house there where he claims to have spent his former life.

When the boy's mother asks Isabel to investigate his claims, she feels she must - of course! - help them learn the truth, and she and her husband, Jamie, set off for the island.

But finding the house the boy described only leads to more complicated questions. And when she learns about the unusual story of the family who lived there, Isabel is suddenly faced with a situation of extraordinary delicacy that will require all of her skills as both sleuth and philosopher.

    Story
    "An now we have english accent narrator for Edinburgh"

    I know they change narrators but the last 3of these have really thrown me and now the narrator is so terribly English it's completely different to all the others and you lose the continuity of voices and personalities of the characters. I adore this series but I do wish they'd keep similar narration as one gets used to the nuances of the characters

    "Poor quaility recording!"
    What did you like best about The Novel Habits of Happiness: Isabel Dalhousie, Book 10? What did you like least?

    I liked the scottish theme and family life of Isabel but as I have the volume up loud because I am deaf the recording was poor and crackly!
