I've always dreamed of moving to Spain, and this book lets me do that vicariously.
Victoria Twead has a warm, engaging style that makes me feel like I'm catching up with an old friend, who's telling me about her adventures over a drink or three. We get to hear about the house hunt, the renovations, the chickens -- who knew they had such personalities! -- and, of course, the neighbours. Plus there are more than two dozen recipes, so you can recreate the dishes to get some of the tastes and scents of the tiny village described so lovingly.
It's a lovely read from start to finish. Highly recommended!
