One Mallorcan Summer

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Having battled and succumbed to the manana pace of rural Mallorca, spring sees Peter Kerr and his family relaxing into a supposedly simpler way of life, growing oranges on their little farm, Ca's Mayoral. 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 the local police, the unfortunate outcome of a drinking session; surprises are aplenty to test the resolve, stamina, and, perhaps more importantly, the sense of humor of this venturesome emigre family. Their eccentric and colorful new friends are always on hand to help out—for better or worse—and add spice to this account of tranquilo life.
