From the beloved and bestselling author of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, a charming short story collection about life and romance.
In these delightful stories, McCall Smith imagines the lives and loves behind some of the everyday people featured in the Sunday Times newspaper photographic archive. A young woman finds unexpected love while perusing Egyptian antiquities. A family is forever fractured when war comes to colonial Panang, Thailand. Iron jelloid tablets help expose a young man's inner strength. And twin sisters discover that romance can blossom anywhere--even at the altar.
Throughout these stories, McCall Smith employs his indomitable charm to explore the possibilities of love, friendship, and happiness.
