    Yes, Precious is one of the most enjoyable fictional characters around.  And I so identify with you re this:

    She helped me get better after a very difficult time.  She reminded me to focus on the good in people and the good in Life, instead of getting trapped in negativity.
    That is one of the best things about fiction--the fact that it can take you away from your present reality and remind you, as you said, to focus on the good in people. After my own mother's death five years ago I read my way through every one of Anne Weale's books.  They were formulaic, of course, but the different backgrounds did divert me from the emotional pain I was feeling.  Glad to hear Precious Ramotswe helped you.

    Thanks for coming by--it's always good to see you!
