One Mallorcan AutumnBook - 2005
Autumn has arrived for the Kerrs on their fruit farm on the island of Mallorca. The year's third season, "winter's spring," finds Peter under the sharp eye of his long-suffering wife, Ellie, struggling to shake off the relaxed Spanish tranquiloness that he has now mastered all too well. Old friendships have been established, and new ones are found as the Kerrs are introduced to Mallorca's "Filthy-Rich Set" and their eyes are opened to just how the other half lives. Mosquito-repellent vinegar baths, delicious Mallorcan food, and with the support from a background cast of dogs, donkeys, geckos, parrots, and canaries, this is an autumn such as they've never known. On top of all this, the vital question for the Kerrs is whether they will win or lose their gamble of starting a new life in the sun. Fortunately, the laughs still outnumber the tears as they look forward to their second year at the orange farm with redoubled--or maybe overly optimistic--enthusiasm.
