Product Details


“Gorgeously romantic. . . . McCall Smith’s writing has tons of charm and kindly wisdom.” —The Times (London)
“Glows with evocations of place as well as secrets of the heart—a combination this author excels at. Armchair travelers will feel they’ve visited the Cayman Islands and Scotland, in particular. . . . Life is full of surprises, McCall Smith reminds us.” —New York Journal of Books
“What may seem like an ordinary love tangle is a very rich stew of contemporary mores and a great stage for both comedy and heartbreak.” —Booklist (starred review)
