At the peak of her fast-paced career as a news presenter and interviewer Selina Scott bought a house in the Tramuntana hills of Mallorca. It was a ramshackle old farmhouse without even mains electricity, but the beauty and peace of the surroundings promised an idyllic escape from her high-pressure job. After several years of commuting between continents she decided to settle there and spend time renovating the house properly. Along the way a new rhythm and peaceful way of life would surely emerge? It was then that the adventure really began. In this funny, elegantly written account of her Spanish years Selina tells us about the house that captured her heart, the neighbours that became friends, and those that didn't, the hills and wildlife that enchanted her, the building work that nearly broke her and, crucially, the dog that found her, and changed every single one of her best laid plans! This title presents an uplifting story of escape, change and friendship.
