The Right Attitude to Rain
Publisher: Recorded Books
Date: September 2006
Duration: 8 hours 57 minutes
Edinburgh once again provides a colorful setting for the adventures of Isabel Dalhousie, the 40-ish editor of a philosophy journal who loves solving problems. But, like McCall Smith's previous heroine, Precious Ramotswe, she often embroils herself in problems that are none of her business, including some that are best left to the police. Charming and affable, she continually finds herself pulled into the complicated lives of those around her—especially those in need of assistance. Like the others in this series, Right Attitude to Rain offers both a cosy mystery and a fascinating moral dilemma.
Precious Ramotswe fans are sure to embrace Scotsman McCall Smith's plucky new protagonist, who leads a cast of delightfully quirky characters that includes Toby, a dapper bachelor with a dubious understanding of fidelity, and Grace, Dalhousie's morally upright housekeeper, who sizes up society's reprobates in two syllables or less.
