Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This is the fourth book in Peter Kerr’s award-winning pentad of fun-filled Mallorcan travelogues, which also includes Snowball Oranges, Mañana Mañana, Viva Mallorca! and From Paella to Porridge.

It’s the peak of the orange-harvesting season at the Kerr’s little farm in the entrancing Tramuntana Mountains of Mallorca, and the intrepid Scots family are trying to relax into their new life on the sunny Spanish island. But it’s also crunch time, because, after the excitement of a roller coaster first year, hard facts now have to be faced.

Will all the work they’ve put into improving the neglected orchards provide them with a decent living, or will their dream turn into a nightmare? Will Peter’s new-found aptitude for mañananess be the last straw for the long-suffering Ellie, and will elder son Sandy return to Scotland, while young Charlie is seduced by Mallorca’s super-rich yachting set?

As the beautiful ‘snowfall’ of almond blossom heralds the arrival of spring, the Kerrs’ sense of humour remains irrepressible through thick and thin … as well it may!
