Tears of the Giraffe

by Alexander McCall Smith

A beguiling book which draws you in, in an unruffled way, but there is activity beneath the surface. Polite conversations, reminiscent of an earlier era, add to the atmosphere. After reading this book I read and enjoyed the other titles in this series.

Extract

After all, she was an independent-minded woman, with a business to run, and a comfortable house of her own in Zebra Drive. Why, he wondered, should a woman like that take on a man, when a man could prove to be difficult to manage once vows were exchanged and he had settled himself in her house? No, if he were in Mma Ramotswe's shoes, then he might well decline an offer of marriage, even from somebody as eminently reasonable and respectable as himself.
