In this sequel to Driving Over Lemons and A Parrot in the Pepper Tree, The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society finds Chris Stewart and his family still living on their farm, El Valero, in Andalucia.

As with his previous two books, much of the joy comes from his unexpected experiences 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; launches an Almond Blossom Appreciation Society, and more.

At one point he even 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...

With its easy charm and funny anecdotes, The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society is an ideal read for both the armchair and real-world traveller.

*This Anniversary Edition of the book includes an author interview, bringing events up to date at El Valero.*
