About the book

Having succumbed to the mañana pace of rural Mallorca, spring sees Peter Kerr and family relaxing into a supposedly simpler way of life, growing oranges on their little valley farm.

However, even after the trials, tribulations and triumphs of their initiation, Spain has not yet finished with them. Embarrassing subtleties of the language, brushes with local police, the unfortunate outcome of a drinking session… surprises aplenty test the resolve, stamina and sense of humour of the Kerr family.

This engaging account of tranquilo life from the author of Snowball Oranges celebrates all the charm of Mallorca: where you seldom do today what can be more judiciously put off till mañana!
