From the Hardcover edition.
"The sixteenth installment of the internationally bestselling No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series again showcases the boundless compassion, humor, and occasional wiliness of the agencys founder, the traditionally built Mma Precious Ramotswe. . . . The title comes from Preciouss reflection that she, blessed by the love of her husband, the proprietor of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, walks in sunshine. Readers of this and the whole series will feel similarly blessed." Booklist (starred review)
Praise for Alexander McCall Smith and the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series:
"Calling Precious Ramotswe, owner and chief investigator of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency in Botswana, a detective doesnt do her justice. Problem solver extraordinaire would be much better. Mma Ramotswe . . . treats a whole range of human difficulties as they come her way, finding good solutions through her wisdom, kindness, and tact." Booklist
