Life Beyond the Castanets by Jean Roberts

April 9, 2022

I enjoyed Jean Roberts’ first book very much, but I really loved this one, which kept me turning the pages when I really should have been doing something else. Actually, I read and reviewed it first a month ago in March, but I’ve only just got round to posting it here on my review blog.

In Life Beyond the Castanets, Jean and her husband, Adrian, explore more of Spain from their home in Andalucia. There are chapters about several trips they make that take us to regions and places I knew little to nothing about before. I loved all the descriptions of the scenery, the history, the local specialities and events.

Between these trips, life continues in their village home, where they have to deal with many a problem due to extreme weather events in their absence. As always, the local characters who help them are colourful and charming. This book was a perfect mix of living and travelling in Spain, and the author’s love of the country shines through her writing. Highly recommended.

The link to the book on Amazon US is here, but it is available on all Amazon marketplaces
