9780091914462: A Long Walk in the High Hills: The Story of a House, a Dog and a Spanish Island

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!

An uplifting story of escape, change and friendship.

Review:

'Scott's novel is a charming... holiday book' -- Sunday Express

Book Description:

A warm and witty memoir of moving to Spain to find a new, simpler way of life, only for a whole new batch of entanglement and one very strong-willed dog to turn life upside down again
