Overview
From the bestselling author of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series comes this splendid collection.

Inspired by antique photographs, these five stunning short stories capture the surprising intersections of love and friendship that alter life's journeys. In "Angels in Italy," childhood friends, separated by circumstance, learn the enduring power of a first love. "Sister Flora's First Day of Freedom" introduces us to a young nun who makes a difficult decision to leave the sisterhood and finds delightful new riches in the big city of Edinburgh. The enchanting "Dear Ventriloquist" tells of a mishap at a Canadian circus that sparks unexpected magic between a gifted puppeteer and a dapper lion tamer. Changing a tire changes the life of a young Irish teacher in "The Woman with the Beautiful Car," and a young New Zealander learns what matters in life from his grandfather, a WWII veteran, in "He Wanted to Believe in Tenderness." These charming and poignant stories are a testament to the power of human connection and brim with a grace and humor that could only come from the pen of Alexander McCall Smith.


(With black-and-white photographs throughout.)
