About the AuthorAlexander McCall Smith lives in Scotland, where he is Professor Emeritus of medical law at the University of Edinburgh. He has a long connection with Botswana, where he once worked and to which he returns each year for a visit of homage to the country of his heroine Mma Ramotswe. He is the author of many other books, including the Isabel Dalhousie series. In his spare time, he plays the contrabassoon in an amateur orchestra called the Really Terrible Orchestra.

Book DescriptionLa's Orchestra Saves the World is another delightful story celebrating friendship and the healing power of music, told with the warmth and charm we've come to love from this favourite storyteller. It's 1939 and the war in Europe casts a long, all-encompassing shadow. In a sleepy town in Suffolk, La, the generous and determined widow, forms an amateur orchestra to entertain the locals and soothe her own broken heart. She recruits Feliks, a refugee from Poland, to play the flute, and a touching friendship emerges. When the war is over and the orchestra disbands, La is left pondering her next move. What role can she play in her community now that the war is over? And can she let herself love again?
