This storyline of this series is quite faithful to books. They did a marvelous job of casting the characters -- just how I imagined them. Of most importance, the series reproduces the charm of Alexander McCall Smith's books and the beautiful spirit of Botswana. This is a truly uplifting show, and I'm anxiously awaiting additional episodes. Read more
