Review by booksbooks11
Another wonderful story by McCall Smith, it wraps its way around your heart like a big warm fluffy jumper. I hate to get to the end of every one of his books, can't wait for the next installment. I have rated it four just because this isn't a book that is going to really change your life or open your mind to a whole new way of thinking. It's just a lovely warm hearted story that you feel so intimately connected to that you won't want to put it down.

Continuing stories in the life of Precious. Her fiancee, becomes depressed, and several tricky cases arrive at once. Fortunetly Mma Makutsi is capable at ordering the aprentices around. More social commentry on the differenes between men and women - astutely picked up on from a male author. The continued assult on more generously sized people by thin people is also worthy of mention severla times. In the end all these stories are about the love of Africa and the importance of rain. Pula, Pula, Pula.

Another beautiful book about the best of African culture and life.
Review by WomblingStar
Part of a nice, easy to read and cheerful series. I did find the depression story harder though this time and whilst it allowed for the ladies to develop in their role, it does not seem needed as part of the story.
Review by Figgles
Nice read, more of the same but who can argue with a gentle story of compassion and love?
