The Mango Orchard - Robin Bayley


Half-travelog and half-family history, a pleasant enough read but it would have benefited from being one or the other. The author has some vivid adventures in Latin America, meeting local characters and soaking up the atmosphere. Then he discovers the Mexican side of the family. Then there's a bit more travelling and a rather abrupt ending. I found myself wanting more context and detail - which could be regarded as both a good and a bad thing.
