Summary
The Unbearable Lightness of Scones is fifth in the 44 Scotland Street series." "Here we find Bertie, the precocious six-year-old, still troubled by his rather overbearing mother, Irene, but finding escape in the Cub Scouts. Matthew is rising to the challenge of married life with newfound strength and resolve, while Domenica epitomises the loneliness of the long-distance intellectual. Narcissistic Bruce is wrestling with a big lifestyle decision, and Angus Lordie, portrait painter and pet owner, grapples with unexpected canine problems. And, finally, Angus's dog, Cyril, the gold-toothed star of the whole show, succumbs to the kind of temptation that no dog can resist ..
