An American client, Ruth, arrives seeking Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi's assistance. Ruth has come to visit the land of which he spoke and to find her relatives. Unfortunately, his stories were not very detailed. Mma Ramotswe starts to realize there is more to this woman's longing than she initially thought.
