The twelfth installment in the beloved, best-selling series is once again a beautiful blend of wit and wisdom, and a proshy;foundly touching tale of the human heart. 160;Precious Ramotswe is haunted by a dream in which she is driving her dear old white van. Grace Makutsi dreams that her 97 percent on the Botswana Secreshy;tarial College exam was a mistake. When Mma Rashy;motswe discovers that her van is actually still in use (and, of course, sets out to retrieve it), Mma Makutsi wonders whether her dream will turn out to be proshy;phetic as well. They can only wait and see, but, in the meantime, one of Phuti Radiphutirsquo;s apprentices has gotten a girl pregnant and, under pressure to marry her, has run away. Naturally, it is up to Precious and Grace to help the couple work things out. In other developments, Mma Ramotswe investigates a case of rural jealousy in which cattle are being poisoned. Add to the mix Violet Sephothorsquo;s newly begun, already unstoppable run for the Botswana Parliament and the possibility that wedding bells may finally ring for Phuti Rashy;diphuti and Grace Makutsimdash;whose love for each other is as great as their love for Botswanamdash;and we have a charming and delightful tale in the inimitable style of Alexander McCall Smith.
