The Discreet Charm Of Mary Maxwell-Hume

Mary Maxwell-Hume is a nun, a piano teacher, and an enigma. She wears close-fitting dresses that reveal nothing and everything at the same time, and Chanel No.5. And she just might be slightly dubious.

About Gordon Lawrie

Gordon Lawrie spent thirty-six years teaching Modern Studies in the Edinburgh area, and has written on several educational topics including citizenship, the teaching of politics, and the relationship between education and society. In an earlier part of his life, he was a mediocre pub-style folk singer, singing a mix of his own songs and covers of others.

Today he lives in Edinburgh city centre.

Review by: Brett Kincaid on July 31, 2017 : (no rating)
Mary is one of those characters that immediately get under your skin and you can’t wait to find out what she’s going to do next. She functions on so many levels that she keeps her, dare I say victims, and readers on the edge of their seat. Using every means in her arsenal she entices, cons and excoriates, but, in the end, you can’t help but love her. Thanks for adding Mary to our lives.
