Letters from Mallorca is the story of?time spent in Hospital Joan March, ?situated high in the hills of?Mallorca. A blood infection resulting in a?three-day fever, alerted Kevin to?the fact that something was?desperately wrong, and within?hours he had an emergency?operation to have his left foot?removed. Over the next six months he gets?to know the patients and nurses;?learns some Spanish, has some?comical adventures with fellow?Inmates, Ramon and Leonthio; and?falls madly in love. He is a big hit amongst the nurses: "Christmas Party Maria," "The Lovely?Francisca," "Contact Lens Marga," to name but a few. However, right from the start, he only has eyes for one of them - his?beautiful "Guardian Angel," Maria Angeles. "The girl who would simply?take away the pain." This is a positive, life-affirming and confident, true and honest story.?Whilst deeply personal, it offers an amusing and entertaining look at?everyday life on a ward in a foreign country, where the language barrier?provides much amusement and is highlighted to great comic effect. The?reader is taken right to the heart of Kevin's world and allowed the most?intimate view of his life, and comes away with a feeling of hope and?inspiration
