Praise

“In Mma Ramotswe, [McCall Smith] minted one of the most memorable heroines in any modern fiction.”

   —USA Today

“If you’ve never read a No. 1 Ladies’, now’s the time. . . . The brilliance of this series … is that what may seem like tiny cases expand into considerations of virtue, love, ambition, greed, and evil.”
   —Booklist (starred review)
 
“An oasis. . . . Full of wit, nuance, and caring.”
   —Chicago Sun-Times

   —Los Angeles Times

“There is no end to the pleasure that may be extracted from these books.”
   —The New York Times Book Review

“These gentle stories of manners and morality have a clarity that . . . seems far harder to discern in our own rushed, deadline-driven lives.” 
   —The Scotsman
