The adventures of two newly minted expatriates and their experiences setting up and operating an international bookshop in the Algarve, the sunny southern coast of Portugal.
Lured by tawny beaches, blossoming almond trees, dazzling white villas, golf courses and quaint fishing villages, Marianne Gilbert Finnegan and her husband set out to build a home and open an international bookshop in the Algarve, the sunny southern coast of Portugal.
They found the beauty they had expected and established warm new friendships across national boundaries. But their journey also led them through unexpected obstacles presented by people, customs, climate and the quirks and snags of their own, suddenly expatriate, identities.
Dreaming of Portugal is a delightful memoir that speaks to the longing for adventure and the belief that building a new future is possible at any age.
