#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
“Utterly charming and compulsively readable.” Newsweek
“The pleasure of these sweet books lies in the clarity and gravity with which the characters reason through everyday dilemmas.” Entertainment Weekly
“McCall Smith’s characters are quick to find joy in small things. . . . In its own way, McCall Smith’s world is as stylized and hermetic as those created by P.G. Wodehouse or Damon Runyon—a sweet and timeless bubble with its own morality, language and customs. Entering it can be a source of great comfort in these uncertain times.” The Seattle Times

There was much written about the series and this title. The positive, light spirited, the wisdom, the interesting characters, made it the most popular of the author's different topics. As I agree with all the praise, I would like to concentrate on one thing which bothered me in some of the latest volumes.
Mma Ramotswe lost her only child when she was first unhappily married, and she cannot have any more children. Therefore, after she married Mr. Matekoni, they adopted two orphans-a boy and a girl. The girl is in the wheel chair. And yet, we don't hear about the children, except that they either are going to bed, or are asleep. The reader has a feeling that this household is a childless one. Mma Ramotswe is free to plan her days, both parents are supposed to be very busy, but what are the children doing? They go to school alright, but what is happening when they are home? Certainly, the girl in a wheelchair needs much attention. How are they growing up? What is their appreciation of their parents? Do the parents teach them anything? Are there any problems, ever?
After adopting the children, the author forgot to integrate them into the household.
More African stuff from this writer will surely sell.
