The Soller Valley is a cultural goldmine. Many live off the radar and have no desire to be anything other than a local neighbour. Sometimes, even for them, the lid is raised and we realise what talent is around. A major book launch in Palma last week pulled Laura McVeigh into the front and centre of our world and I was fortunate enough to talk to her. Laura lives between Soller and Deya, after discovering the Valley by arriving on the Soller Train. She was captivated from minute one as the place for family life and a writing career.
