It says on the back cover 'If you like a read with chuckles, this is it.' I have to agree. The IndiaNeed charity shop in Cambridge is a marvellous setting. The interweaving of the lives of four women, three of Indian origin and one Irishwoman, together with the formidable Diana Wellington-Smythe (Director on the Board of the Charity), allows a feast of gentle comedy to ensue. If you found The Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency a welcome respite from weightier tomes this is a must-read.
