Nicholas draws readers back into the delight of learning the ins and outs of running an organic, self-sufficient farm in her fifth book
Having settled in a Mallorcan mountain idyll, Anna Nicholas, her husband the Scotsman, and their son Ollie want to become as self-sufficient as possible. Anna teams up with organic farmers and smallholders to learn how to tend sheep, make cheese and honey, and grind flour, while the Scotsman creates havoc with his friend Pep in an attempt at winemaking and tries to fathom what's troubling the wriggly inhabitants of his beloved wormery. However, Anna can't quite shake off her old clients from the PR world and is persuaded by Greedy George to create a media storm for his new Spanish leather store, involving an elderly bullfighter and a gigantic bull on a Barcelona beach.
