Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools by NY Times bestselling author, Victoria Twead
Click here to see synopsis

"Perhaps if Joe and Vicky had known what relocating to a tiny village tucked in the Alpujarra mountains would really be like, they might have hesitated... They have no idea they will become reluctant chicken farmers and own the most dangerous cockerel in Spain. No idea they will be befriended by an 85 year old spliff-smoking sex-kitten, help capture a vulture or be rescued by a mule.

Their story is packed with irreverent humour, animals, eccentric characters and sunshine.
Includes Spanish recipes from the village ladies."

Good Reads

Napoleon: A Life by Andrew Roberts
Wikipedia - "French military leader and emperor. A paper by William Osler in 1903 stated, "The slow pulse of Napoleon rests upon tradition; it has been suggested that his epilepsy and attacks of apathy may have been associated features in a chronic form of Stokes-Adams disease", which implies the seizures were not epileptic in origin. However, in 2003, John Hughes concluded that Napoleon had both psychogenic attacks due to stress and epileptic seizures due to chronic uremia from a severe urethral stricture caused by gonorrhea."
If you are interested in history and want to learn more about what made Napoleon tick, this is a book for you.
