Reviews

Poignant. . . . Readers can start here and feel the warmth of McCall Smith's wit, deft characterization, and overarching theme of kindness. However, if you read the series from the outset, you'll be treated to an astonishing view of changes in characters' lives, very much like a time-lapse video in book form.
--Booklist (starred review)

"Sense and humor fuse absolutely." --The Scotsman

"McCall Smith is an engaging and a witty guide to the goings on (and comings off) at fictional 44 Scotland Street." --The Daily Express (London)
