No sooner had Chris Stewart set eyes on El Valero than he handed over a check. Now all he had to do was explain to Ana, his wife that they were the proud owners of an isolated sheep farm in the Alpujarra Mountains in Southern Spain. That was the easy part. Lush with olive, lemon, and almond groves, the farm lacks a few essentials—running water, electricity, an access road. And then there's the problem of rapacious Pedro Romero, the previous owner who refuses to leave. A perpetual optimist, whose skill as a sheepshearer provides an ideal entrée into his new community, Stewart also possesses an unflappable spirit that, we soon learn, nothing can diminish. Wholly enchanted by the rugged terrain of the hillside and the people they meet along the way—among them farmers, including the ever-resourceful Domingo, other expatriates and artists—Chris and Ana Stewart build an enviable life, complete with a child and dogs, in a country far from home. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Jason Webster had lived in Spain for 15 years when he and his partner Salud, a flamenco dancer, tired of their city life and decided to buy a crumbling farmhouse clinging to the side of a steep valley in the eastern province of Castellón. He knew nothing about farming - he didn't even know what an almond tree looked like, or that he owned over 100 of them - but with help from local farmers and a twelfth-century book on gardening he set about recreating his dream. Sacred Sierra tells the story of their first year on the mountain, and how they cleared the land, planted and harvested olives, nurtured precious, expensive truffles, all while surviving gale force winds and scorching summer fires. While toying with the timeless, he also retells ancient legends and as the year passed, finds himself increasingly in tune with the ancient, mystical life of the sierra, a place that will haunt your imagination and raise your spirits.

On a dark November evening, Sir Wilfred Saxonby is travelling alone in the 5 o’clock train from Cannon Street, in a locked compartment. The train slows and stops inside a tunnel; and by the time it emerges again minutes later, Sir Wilfred has been shot dead, his heart pierced by a single bullet. Suicide seems to be the answer, even though no reason can be found. Inspector Arnold of Scotland Yard thinks again when he learns that a mysterious red light in the tunnel caused the train to slow down. Finding himself stumped by the puzzle, Arnold consults his friend Desmond Merrion, a wealthy amateur expert in criminology. To Merrion it seems that the dead man fell victim to a complex conspiracy—but the investigators are puzzled about the conspirators’ motives, as well as their identities. Can there be a connection with Sir Wilfred’s seemingly untroubled family life, his highly successful business, or his high-handed and unforgiving personality? And what is the significance of the wallet found on the corpse, and the bank notes that it contained?

Funny or sad, fact or fiction, heart-warming or heartbreaking. We asked animal lovers everywhere to contribute stories, anecdotes or poems about animals in order to raise funds to help alleviate the desperate plight of abandoned pets in the Alpujarra region of Southern Spain. The response was overwhelming. In addition to a lovely tale from international bestselling author Chris Stewart, (Driving over Lemons), we have stories from many other well known authors including Victoria Twead, David Luddington, Jeff Jones and Elizabeth Revill. Other contributions come from published novelists, broadcasters, writers or everyday animal lovers just sharing their own stories and thoughts. The only thing they all have in common is their passion to help. Southern Spain has been badly hit by the Euro crisis and has one of the highest unemployment rates in Europe resulting in thousands of once-loved domestic pets being abandoned to fend for themselves. Sadly most of these domesticated animals will not survive on their own. In its short history, Valle Verde is a rescue centre which has rescued, treated and re-homed hundreds of lost and bewildered animals however they are desperately short of funds. They receive no government help and rely purely on private donations. This anthology has been sponsored by Mirador Publishing with all profits being donated to help Valle Verde Animal Rescue. All of the authors have generously donated their work and the cover was designed by local artist Charlotte Moore, famous for the covers gracing many best sellers. We are indebted to all those wonderful people who have helped make this anthology a reality. Please read and enjoy and know that you are helping.

Charles, the Parish Council chairman, is deeply opposed and resents the enthusiasm of other villagers – including his wife Betty. As the outside broadcast vehicles roll in, the emotional temperature rises…
