Product description

Amazon Review

Like so many other Scottish farmers, Peter Kerr and his partner Ellie had passed many a bleak winter's evening "indulging in dreams of someday swapping the rigours of growing crops and raising cattle in the harsh Scottish climate" for the more idyllic option of a small farm in Spain. On the day their dream came true, when they finally moved into their Mallorcan farmhouse, 1500 miles southwards of Scotland, it snowed. But they were lucky to be there at all: Peter and Ellie discovered their new home after taking a wrong turning while on a summer holiday, instantly falling for its "white walls, faded wooden shutters and terracotta tiled roof" which "peeped sleepily over the deep green domes of orange trees, while the mountains looked benignly on". With prose as elegant as this, Snowball Oranges is one travel book that needs no illustrations. In fact it reads more like a novel, brimming with charming characters and good humour. "My drenched trousers clung uncomfortably to my legs," the author tells us following a mishap with a hose, "dredging up sorry memories of a once-familiar sensation that I hadn't experienced since my early days at infant school." By the time you reach the last page, you feel as though you are in the Mediterranean with them, and you don't want to go home.--Daren King --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

'… hilarious, full of life and colour.'

(The Bolton Evening News)

'delightful... hilarious and revealing. Full of life and colour... and is entertaining for everyone... witty... packed with funny stories.'

(Sixtyplusurfers)

'As bright in tone as the primary colours of its new cover... the book is rich on atmospheric detail.'

(Telegraph.co.uk)

'Peter's fruity tale still has plenty of juice left!... a hilarious personal account.'

(East Lothian Courier)

‘An affectionate and amusing tale on Majorca and its inhabitants’

(Sunday Express)

A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle was one of the great hits of travel writing – and now there could well be another, this time with a rich and tasty Spanish flavour’

(The Scots Magazine)

‘Beautifully written and amusing . . . a comparison with A Year in Provence cannot be avoided and Snowball Oranges should with justification be equally well received’

(Adventure-mag.com)

‘Immensely engaging and amusing’

(Alternative Mallorca)

‘It’s a really funny read and had me laughing out loud on my journey to work’

(Family Circle)

‘Peter Kerr writes with a combination of nice observation and gentle humour’

(The Sunday Times)

‘This should do for Spain what A Year in Provence did for France’

(The Sunday Post Magazine)
