"The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society" finds Chris and his family still living on their farm, El Valero, and with its easy 'Sun-Lit' charm and funny, evocative anecdotes, it will draw in new and old readers alike. You will find yourself laughing out loud as Chris is instructed by his daughter on local teenage mores; bluffs his way in art history to millionaire Bostonians; is rescued off a snowy peak by the Guardia Civil; and joins an Almond Blossom Appreciation Society. You'll cringe with Chris as he tries his hand at office work in an immigrants' advice centre in Granada, spurred into action by the arrival of four destitute young Moroccans at El Valero. And you'll never see olive oil in quite the same way again. In this sequel to "Driving Over Lemons" and "A Parrot in the Pepper Tree", Chris Stewart's optimism and zest for life is as infectious as ever.

This book has been donated to the nonfiction vbb organized by booklady331. I bought this book at a local Goodwill years ago because I have read the first two books written by the author about living in Spain. I am currently reading this book and find it as interesting and amusing as the author's previous two books.
