“This 9th book of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series finds Mma Ramotswe looking for a family for a client. The client suspects that her late mother was not her biological mother, but has no clues other than her intuition. Mma Ramotswe must sort through conflicting information that she finds, and she must decide if it is necessary to reveal everything that is discovered.
Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni (Mma Ramotswe's husband) meets a doctor who claims to have a miracle cure for their adopted daughter's spinal condition.
Grace Makutsi (Mma Ramotswe's associate detective) loses sleep over her need to be honest and truthful with her fiance regarding a costly mistake she has made.
Another warm and charming gentle read filled with grace, resourcefulness, subtle humor, and light mystery. Rich character development continues throughout the series.
