Sweet, thoughtful Isabel is once again confronted with a moral dilemma. She made a promise to keep a friend’s secret, and then finds that in order to keep that secret, she must betray another friend. If you are a reader of the Isabel Dalhousie books, you know that she must consider, and reconsider all of her actions. And so we are privileged to see the working of her mind as she struggles with her conscience. I very much enjoy reading about Isabel’s life. It is so gentle, calming, that it makes me feel that people are civilized after all. This is advertised as a short story, but is either a long story or a short novella.
