Description
This time around, the charming and ever-resourceful Precious Ramotswe finds herself overly beset by problems. She is busier than usual at the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (of all times for Mma Makutsi to take up dance lessons!) when a strange intruder in her house on Zebra Drive and the baffling appearance in her yard of a mysterious pumpkin add to her concerns. Nor are things running quite as smoothly as they usually do at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors. Mma Ramotswe's husband--the estimable Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni--is overburdened with work even before one of his apprentices runs off with a wealthy woman. But what finally rattles Mma Ramotswe's normally unshakeable composure is the visitor who forces her to confront a painful secret from her past. All this unfolds against the sunlit background of Precious Ramotswe's beloved homeland, Botswana: empty spaces, echoing skies, and an endless supply of soothing bush tea.
