Tears of the Giraffe ~ Alexander McCall Smith

Tears of
the Giraffe

Alexander McCall Smith

Book 2 in the Series

No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Mme Ramotswe returns in another beautifully crafted book aobut her detective agency, her engagement to a wonderful and caring man, his adoption of two orphans, and her talented secretary who is learning to come unto her own.

This book is beautifully written with characters who are real in their goodness or their wickedness, this book shares the spirit of Botswana, the sense of the country. You can feel the heat and smell the dust in the writing.

These are wonderful 'travel books' - books that are easy to take with you and to read on the go - while traveling or waiting. They are a joy to read.
