Worth Striking For:Why Education Policy is Every Teacher´s Concern (Lessons from Chicago) Isabel Nunez, Gregory Michie, Pamela Konkol
Isabel Dalhousie now has a second child - another boy, Magnus. He comes home with her at the beginning of the book and she discovers that Charlie is far from thrilled. He sees no need for a new baby. In Cat´s delicatessen, Isabel meets a woman with whom she had been at school. This woman, Bea Shand, is known as an enthusiastic match-maker. She is very worried, though, as she has introduced a woman she knows to a plastic surgeon who is now described by another friend as a gold-digger. This other friend reveals that the surgeon has a bad track record: he has been involved with a series of well-off women and has succeeded in separating a number of then from their money. Bea asks Isabel to investigate; she herself tried to warn her friend of the danger she was in but was rebuffed badly. Isabel starts to make enquiries. At first the pattern that emerges confirms her friend´s dire diagnosis, but as things develop it emerges that not only is the surgeon innocent, but he himself is the one in danger! In the meantime, as a sub-plot, Isabel finds that the man who warned her of the surgeon´s proclivities, is taking an interest in her (Isabel). He appears to be smitten by her; she tries to get away from him but discovers that she has inadvertently given Jamie grounds to believe that she (Isabel) is having an affair. This is awkward, but is resolved satisfactorily. Her final conclusion: match-make at one´s peril. Never tell people half-truths for paternalistic reasons. Mind your own business (a lesson that Isabel never seems to learn).
Isabel Dalhousie - philosopher, mother and friend - is taking on the mammoth task of hosting her school reunion. In the hours before 25 former classmates descend on her home and the caterers arrive to set up a buffet, Isabel has time to reflect. She is mindful of the fact that reunions can bring up all sorts of uncomfortable feelings. Later that night, with the party in full swing, Isabel realises that the pull of the past remains as strong as ever. Some people are interested in fuelling disagreements while others are hoping to make amends. As hostess of the party, Isabel feels compelled to help them on the path to mercy and forgiveness. But what if the reasons for forgiveness are murky and suspect? And what if long-held secrets threaten to derail Isabel´s efforts? In this warm, intelligently observed novella, Alexander McCall Smith´s wonderful heroine, Isabel, learns valuable lessons about inviting the past into your life. 1. Language: English.

The Yellow Brick Road Gang, otherwise known as Metaphysical Misadventures in the Search for Enlightenment, is a circle of women who came together as a book club. Together they began a spiritual search - and throughout the last eight years each woman has arrived at the realization that after all their searching for knowledge they´ve come full circle. The only constant is change and the only thing they know for certain is they know nothing. Anything is possible. Isabel turns 50 the day after the seventh anniversary of her husband´s death. She´s convinced she will never find love again - and the Gang is convinced that all she needs to do is start taking some of her own great advice. When she meets Joshua - a younger man who wants to give her lessons on love and metaphysics - she finally gives in, heedless of the danger to her heart. But Joshua is both more and less than what he appears to be, and Isabel has to come to terms with herself - and with Joshua´s wonderful and strange provenance. The only way is through the yellow brick road - which leads Isabel right back home, to the miracles within herself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Wiley.
