But when she receives a threatening anonymous letter, she is compelled to reconsider her unconquerable belief in a kind world and good neighbours. While she ponders the identity of the letter-writer Mma Ramotswe has a further set of problems to solve, both professional and personal. There is an adopted child's poignant search for her true family, and Mr J. L. B. Matekoni's pursuit of an expensive miracle for their own foster daughter Motholeli. With these latest developments on Tlokweng Road, Alexander McCall Smith reveals with all his brilliant storytelling skill that there are very few troubles that cannot be solved with kindness, and very few dry seasons that do not end with welcome rain.Hide synopsis

I love Alexander McCall Smith's books from the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series. This is the 9th book in the series. It's based off a lady who opens up a detective agency in Botswana. I feel as if I am right there in Africa with his descriptions of the surroundings and it's colorful characters. There is always one main detective story in which Mma Ramotswe (the lady detective) is trying to solve. In this book it is about a lady who is convinced that her mother was not her real mother. The story also evolves around the people Mma Ramotswe is connected to, her husband, her employee, etc. It is always a heartwarming book to read that leaves you with a smile on your face and a gentle feeling in your heart.
