Mma Ramotswe is busy investigating her latest case: a woman who is looking for her family. The problem is, the woman doesn't know her real name of whether any members of her family are now living. Meanwhile, Phuti Radiphuti has bought Mma Makutsi a glorious new bed. Unfortunately, it will inadvertently cause her several sleepless nights. And life is no less complicated at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni--Mma Ramotswe's estimable husband--has fallen under the sway of a doctor who has promised a miracle cure for his daughter's medical condition, which Mma Ramotswe finds hard to believe. But Precious Ramotswe deals with these difficulties with her usual grace and good humor, and in the end discovers that the biggest miracles in life are often the small ones.

"Alexander McCall Smith's big-hearted Botswanan stories [allow] his readers to escape into a world of simple, picturesque pleasures and upstanding virtues." (The New York Times Book Review)
"The best, most charming, honest, hilarious, and life-affirming books to appear in years." (The Plain Dealer)
I'm not sure which number this is in the Ladies' Detective Agency series, but for the first time in reading these, I found myself a bit tired of it all. For any who love Smith's skill and insight as a writer, and likewise the characters in Mma Ramotswe's world, it's worth reading. I'm glad I did . . .but feel ready to move on now.
