The Mango Orchard: The extraordinary true story of a family lost and found

The Mango Orchard: The extraordinary true story of a family lost and found

Author(s): Robin Bayley

Location(s): Mexico

Genre(s): Fiction

Location

Content

This is part travelogue, part genealogy, part history. Funny and convincing, this is so much more than the sum of its parts. Mexico is described in detail, the author clearly loves the country and culture and people – the colour just leaps off the pages.
