Read full description of the books Snowball Oranges: One Mallorcan Winter:A great read for a dank February in the UK. Written in the style of Driving Over Lemons and A Year in Provence, this is a book to make you laugh out loud. Peter and his wife Ellie have moved from their Scottish farm to a Mallorcan fruit farm. Their two sons are to join them. Needless to say nothing goes smoothly and the language barrier only adds to the confusion. But in spite of all their misfortunes - and even the toilet stops working over Christmas - the descriptions of the views, the people and the general sense of joie de vivre gives the reader a real feel-good factor. It also offers a beautiful picture of this Mediterranean Island and gets away from the Mallorca of holidaying lager louts.
I have come to this book rather late as I gather there are two follow-ons. I look forward to reading those too.
