Synopses & Reviews
In this sixth novel in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, Precious Ramotswe is busier than usual at the agency, when an unidentified intruder in her house on Zebra Road and the sudden appearance of a mysterious pumpkin add to her concerns. Also, things aren't running quite as smoothly as they usually do next door at Tlokweng Road Seedy Motors, where her husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, is overburdened with work even before one of his apprentices runs off with a wealthy woman. Meanwhile, Mma Makutsi has decided to take up dancing lessons. But what really threatens Precious' resolve is a visitor from her past who forces her to confront a secret of her own. And in the background of all this is Botswana, a country of empty spaces and echoing skies, a country so beautiful and entrancing that it breaks your heart. Mma Ramotswe has prepared the bush tea and is waiting for you to join her. She has much to tell you.
