LoveReading View on The Miracle at Speedy Motors

Another wonderful chapter (the 9th in the series) in the colourful lives of these down-to-earth people and their moralistic way of life.  There are crimes to solve, a lady’s relatives to find but the real charm of this series is the continuing relationship of the main characters.  In this one we learn a lot more about the fostered children, Motholeli and Puso.  It’s another lovely mix of gentle philosophy and life-affirming commentary.  A joy to read.

The Miracle at Speedy Motors Synopsis

It has never occurred to Precious Ramotswe that there might be disadvantages to being the best-known lady detective in Botswana. 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.
