To the Land of Long Lost Friends Summary

To the Land of Long Lost Friends by Alexander McCall Smith

The latest instalment from the beloved THE NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY series

The one with the mysterious reverend . . .

At a local wedding, Mma Ramotswe reunites with a friend whose daughter has inexplicably turned away from her. Elsewhere, several ladies in the region fall under the spell of a charismatic self-styled reverend. With little work on at the agency, Precious and Mma Makutsi see no harm in looking into such curious events. Meanwhile, Charlie is anxious. How can he, the part-time detective, secure his love's hand in marriage? Even in the quietest months, it seems, there's plenty for the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency to investigate . . .

(To the Land of Long Lost Friends is the 20th book in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.)

To the Land of Long Lost Friends Reviews

[To the Land of Long Lost Friends] touch[es] on both the minutiae of life and discussions of greater questions . . . Every page contains a gem of wit and insight, and there are also beautiful descriptions of the landscape, so much so that you can almost feel the throbbing heat of the day and the coolness of night. The gentle pace of the narrative gives the characters - and readers - time for reflection, and to dig deeper into wider questions of love, compassion and respect. The novel doesn't shy away from the most difficult subjects either. A moving passage about the life of a young orphan is likely to prompt tears in all but the hardest of hearts * Scotsman *
