Description


It's the peak of orange harvesting season at the Kerrs' little farm in the entrancing Tramuntana Mountains of Mallorca, and the family are trying to relax into their new life on the sunny Spanish island. But it's also crunch time and, after an eventful first year, hard facts have to be faced. Will all the work they've invested in restoring their finca provide them with a decent living, or will their dream turn into a nightmare? Will Peter's new-found aptitude for manananess delay their home improvement projects indefinitely, or will long-suffering Ellie get her new swimming pool? Will 19-year-old Sandy return to Scotland, while young Charlie is seduced by Mallorca's super-rich yachting set? Despite encounters with wry customs officers and wily tradesmen, the Kerrs' sense of humour remains irrepressible.
