Publisher's Summary

The latest instalment of the irresistibly charming, perennially best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.
Precious Ramotswe has always idolised her father, the late Obed Ramotswe. She feels that she knows all about his life - but does she? Sometimes our parents surprise us, and we discover that things were not quite what we thought them to be. And the same goes for Mma Makutsi, Mma Ramotswe's feisty assistant, who also makes certain discoveries about her own past that cause some surprise.
The placid world of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is further disturbed by the arrival in Gaborone of somebody whom Mma Ramotswe - and Mr JLB Matekoni, for that matter - definitely do not want to see. Of course calm eventually prevails - as it always does in the timeless world of these remarkable ladies.
Fans around the world adore the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and its proprietor, Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's premier lady detective. In this delightful series, Mma Ramotswe - with help from her loyal co-director, Mma Makutsi - navigates her cases and her personal life with wisdom, good humour and the occasional cup of tea.

Great book!

Another wonderful book about the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Love all Alexander McCall Smith's ... they are so entertaining and his characters' observations on life give much food for thought. Congratulations to Adjoa Andoh - she is such a talented narrator. I'm always sorry even I get to the end of the books.

Intriguing new storylines

I loved this latest addition to the No. 1 Ladies Detective series. Without giving anything away, it centres on a most intriguing new development in Mma Ramotswe’s story, and of course has a juicy mystery to solve. Adjoa Andoh’s performance is, as always, impeccable. Her differentiation of the characters’ voices is masterful and so entertaining. I strongly recommend The House of Unexpected Sisters.

Difficult to understand would rather read the book

I love these books and was looking forward to this one.
However although it was read extremely well with proper accents and all I found it hard to understand some of the speech. I would rather read it myself but have low vision and maybe I can't do that.
