The eighth installment in the universally beloved, internationally bestselling series.
In the life of Mma Ramotswe – a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build – there is rarely a dull moment, and in her newest round of adventures, challenges and intrigues, the same certainly holds true. But one thing above all else is keeping her occupied – her estimable husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni. He has been hinting for some time now that he intends to do something special for their adopted daughter, Motholeli, and it seems that the time for this good deed has come. Of course, good deed or not, his plan is bound to hit some snags. And that’s when he will undoubtedly consider himself doubly – perhaps even triply – lucky to be married to the ever-resourceful, ever-understanding Precious Ramotswe.
Alexander McCall Smith lives in Scotland, where he is Professor Emeritus of medical law at the University of Edinburgh. He has a long connection with Botswana, where he once worked and to which he returns each year for a visit of homage to the country of his heroine Mma Ramotswe. He is the author of many other books, including the Isabel Dalhousie series. In his spare time, he plays the contrabassoon in an amateur orchestra called the Really Terrible Orchestra.
