The Woman Who Walked In Sunshine – Alexander McCall Smith
Digital audiobook performed by Liset Lecat
3.5***

Book sixteen in the immensely popular – and equally enjoyable – series starring Mma Precious Ramotswe and other residents of Gabaron, Botswana. In this episode Mma Ramotswe is persuaded by Mma Grace Matekoni Radiputi to take a well-deserved vacation. Except that cases still come her way: from a troubled young boy to a politician whose reputation is being sullied.

I love this series for the gentle “mysteries of daily life” and for the wonderful way that Precious arrives at the truth and solves her cases. There are no gristly murders here, though there are mysteries of human behavior. There are lessons to be learned about relationships: with husbands, children, friends, colleagues. And Precious learns something about herself as well.

Spending time with the characters of these novels is like enjoying an afternoon libation on a patio in the sunshine. May we ALL walk in sunshine!

Liset Lecat is simply marvelous as the narrator of the series’ audiobooks. She brings these characters to life.

Karin | 7301 comments I enjoyed this as well--I always end up enjoying these even if they start off a bit so-so at the start. This is not true for me with all of his books, either stand-alone or series, it just depends on what he has done.
