I don't know how Alexander McCall Smith does it, but he manages to write the sweetest tales without getting treacly. Everything he writes is heartwarming without getting mushy. He also has an amazing knack for writing from a woman's perspective. If y ...more

I have always loved Anne Tyler's writing style but frequently felt a little frustrated by how unresolved her stories felt. Slice of life is interesting, but not always satisfying. This book, however, does have a nice, resolved ending and even though ...more

I actively avoided reading this book for a long time. I thought it would make me feel like I was a horrible person and wasn't doing enough with my life. After I ran out of reading material in the house I finally opened it, and I'm very glad I did. So ...more
