Driving Over Lemons by Chris Stewart is about the trials, tribulations and joys of buying a derelict farm on the outskirts of a village in Andalucia, southern Spain.  The adventures encountered whilst turning the farm into a going concern and a home are told pragmatically and with humour.

We all agreed that this book had been an enjoyable read and, if we were a fewyounger we would have embraced such a life with gusto.

Books and Reading Monday 14th January:-

The discussion on ‘A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess’, Amanda Owen was lively.  The story took us through twelve months of the joys and perils of living and running a hillside farm.  The tone of the book was light and matter of fact making it an easy and relaxing read.

The book for Jan/Feb 2019 is ‘The Shape of Water’  by Andrea Camilleri, a detective novel.  The book will be discussed at thenext meeting on Monday 11 February at Bolsover Library at 2 p.m.
