'Seriously Mum, What’s an Alpaca?’ is the frank and charming story of a brave couple who risk everything to move to Spain to breed alpacas. Their intention is to make a living, but first they must negotiate their way through the Spanish property market, local characters, rogue builders and the worst weather Andalucía has seen for 100 years.

Alan and Lorna experience the joy, but also the heartbreak of alpaca breeding, picking up an assortment of stray animals on the way.

'This is not just another "Brit moving to Spain" story - it is a life and death adventure with babies being born, twists and turns, surprises, tears and laughter.
Alan and Lorna have started on a great adventure and share their ups and downs openly. I'm looking forward to reading more in the future.'
