Simple characters with simple life situations that aren’t so simple when you look at them closely. All these ethical dilemmas one faces on a daily basis can wear you down. And life isn’t all that it appears to be– but you knew that anyway.
What’s interesting to see is how McCall Smith’s character’s discover this enigmatic truth.
