The Right Attitude to Rain: An Isabel Dalhousie Novel, by Alexander McCall Smith

Read, reviewed, and released in April-May, 2013
A quiet, enjoyable book. Ms. Dalhousie is a philosopher and editor of a journal on applied ethics, and she spends much time musing and conversing about morality, ethics, and relationships.
On first glance, she seems to have little in common with Mr. Smith's other heroine, Precious Ramotswe, but in fact they are very similar after all. Both are strong, independent women who are deeply concerned with issues of what's right and wrong, and with people and relationships.
