At once gentle and affectionate while also beautifully witty and thought-provoking, I can highly recommend From a Far and Lovely Country. Here we are at book 24 in the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, and this novel is as wonderfully readable as the previous titles. Author Alexander McCall Smith is so eloquent, he brings Mma Ramotswe and Makutsi to vividly vibrant life. He shines a light on the small things that actually really matter and his sense of humour is kind yet capable of being pointed. In his latest novel the detective agency is tasked with finding long-lost relatives, and discovering who is behind a new club taking advantage of single women. As usual there are several strands to the plot which wends its way through the pages. The sense of place allowed me to feel a part of Botswana and I loved spending time there. Astute observations, even if whispered, sing with intensity. The characters shine brightly, and the relationship between the two leads is as enjoyable as ever. From a Far and Lovely Country is the most gorgeous addition to a series where differences are celebrated and kindness championed.
