Precious and GraceLarge Print - 2016 | Large print edition.
Precious Ramotswe and her Chief Associate Co-Director, Grace Makutsi, have worked together for many years. Together, they have solved numerous complex cases, seeing eye-to-eye on most professional matters. But when a Canadian woman invokes their help in recovering memories of her early childhood in Botswana, differences of opinion arise between the two firm friends, and diplomacy is called for. And it s not just clients who need Mma Ramotswe s help this is also sought by Mr. Polopetsi, her assistant, who becomes involved in a pyramid scheme, and Fanwell, the junior mechanic, who finds a stray dog that will not go away. Both, of course, receive the help and sympathy that Mma Ramotswe dispenses with the graciousness and warmth for which she is so well-known."

I thoroughly enjoyed the latest installment! This book deals a lot with forgiveness, something we can all work better on; Mma Ramotswe has some great thoughts on the subject. I highly recommend picking up this book today!
A speech by the Mayor at the presentation of the Woman of the Year Award: "His speech, which lasted twenty-five minutes, was all about what he had done to further the cause of women. 'That task is never over,' he said. 'There are always more women.'" (p. 222)
I also liked: "The past, she thought was being remembered, and forgotten, in just the right measure." (p. 220)
...perhaps part of the secret of leading a life in which you would not always be worrying about things, or complaining about them, was to accept that there were people who just saw things differently from you and always would. Once you understood that, then you could accept the people themselves as they were and not try to change them. What was even more important, perhaps, was that you could love those people who looked at things so differently, because you realized that they were not trying to make life hard for you by being what they were, but were simply doing their best. Then, when you started to love them, love would do the work that it always did and it would begin to transform them and then they would end up seeing things in the same way that you did." - p. 90
