Synopsis: It's the stuff of dreams. A Scottish family give up relative sanity and security to go and grow oranges for a living in a secluded valley in the mountains of Mallorca. But dreams, as everyone knows, have a nasty habit of not turning out quite as intended. Being greeted by a freak snowstorm is only the first of many surprises and "experiences", and it isn't long before they realise that they have been sold a bit of a lemon of an orange farm by the wily previous owners. However, laughter is the best medicine and a colourful set of Mallorcan neighbours (including an eccentric old goat-herd who eats worm-ridden oranges to improve his sex life) restore the family's faith in human nature and help them adapt to a new and unexpectedly testing life in this deceptively simple idyll of rural Spain.

From the Back Cover: It's the stuff of dreams: A Scottish family gives up relative sanity and security to grow oranges on the Mediterranean island of Majorca. But dreams have a nasty habit of not turning out quite as intended. Being greeted by a freak snowstorm is only the first of many surprising experiences, and it isn't long before they realize that the orange farm they've purchased is a bit of a lemon.
However, laughter is the best medicine when confronted with consuming a local delicacy containing rats, the "live-chicken-down-a-chimney" technique of household maintenance, and attending a shotgun wedding. Their colorful Majorcan neighbors restore the family's faith in humanity, and help them adapt to a new and unexpectedly challenging life in rural Spain. Snowball Oranges is hilarious and revealing, full of life and vivacity, set against the breathtaking backdrop of Majorca.
