When the Kerr family leave Scotland to grow oranges in a secluded valley on the island of Mallorca, they are surprised to be greeted by the same freezing weather they have left behind. Then they realize that their new orange farm is a bit of a lemon. . . . Laughter, finds Peter Kerr, is the best medicine when faced with a local dish of rats and the live-chicken-down-a-chimney technique of household maintenance. But their Mallorcan neighbors help them adapt to their new life. Snowball Oranges is hilarious and revealing, full of life and color, set against the breathtaking beauty of the Mediterranean.
