In the middle of dreary, drawn-out English winter, Mark Harrison and his wife Vivien suddenly took stock of their lives and decided it was time for a change.
Ten months later, and now jobless, they moved into their new home on the outskirts of the village Parcent, in the Jalon valley, inland from Spain’s Costa Blanca.
I Want To Live In Spain is the story of how they got there and how they fared in their new surroundings.
The joys they found and the disasters that befell them are recounted with brutal honesty, interspersed with light-hearted anecdotes about the people they met and the problems they encountered.
I Want To Live In Spain will make you laugh at their innocence and cry at their misfortunes. Above all it will give you an insight into what it’s really like to undergo a lifestyle transplant.
Anyone who has ever dreamed of moving out of the fast lane to find a place in the sun should read this book.
“I’ve finished it already. It’s the best thing I’ve read in years. Now I’m going to sit down and read it all again.”
“It’s brilliant. I rarely read books, but I’ve nearly finished this one already.”
“Beryl’s got it at the moment and won’t let me have it, but she keeps chuckling away to herself so I think she must be enjoying it.”
“My fifteen year old daughter has just finished the book. Normally she gets bored quickly, but she just couldn’t put it down.”
“I only got my copy this morning, but already I’m more than half way through. It’s brilliant and reminds me what it was like when we first came to Spain. I’m going to try to finish it tonight.”…. and next day… “I’ve finished it. I’ve been so busy, but I just had to get back to it whenever I had a spare moment. It’s wonderful and I smiled all the way through. You must write a sequel.”
“I keep laughing out loud as I read it. I haven’t done that for ages.”
“Can I have another copy of your book, I enjoyed it so much I want to send it to a friend.”
“When’s the next one coming out?”
