And there will be a corner of some foreign field that will be forever England. Only these days it more likely to be a half-finished villa overlooking a championship golf course somewhere on one of The Costas. Following an unfortunate encounter with Spanish gin measures and an enthusiastic estate agent, retired special effects engineer Terry England is the proud owner of a nearly completed villa in a new urbanization in Southern Spain. Not quite how he intended to spend his enforced early retirement, Terry nevertheless tries to make the best of his new life. If only the local council can work out which house he actually bought and the leaf blowers would please stop. Terry finds himself being sucked in to the English ex-pat community with their endless garden parties and quests for real bacon and Tetley Tea Bags. Of course, if it all gets too much he can always relax in the local English Bar with a nice pint of Guinness, a roast beef lunch and the Mail on Sunday. With a growing feeling that he might have moved to the wrong Spain, Terry sets out to explore and finds himself tangled in the affairs of a small rustic village in the Alpujarras. It is here where he finds a different Spain. A Spain of loves and passions, a Spain of new hopes and a simpler way of life. A place where a moped is an acceptable means of family transport and a place where if you let your guard down for just a moment, this land will never let you go again. Forever England is the tale of one man trying to redefine who he is and how he wants to live. It is a story of hope and humor with an array of eccentric characters and comic situations for which David Luddington is so well known and loved. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joel Froomkin.
