Delighted to welcome Karen Telling to the Cafe and Bookstore with her memoir Another Day in Paradise.
About the book
A warm-hearted, autobiographical story told by an author who really knows her subject, the location and the lifestyle in a small village in the Algarve, as seen through the eyes of a British couple, who made the move seeking a quieter, more serene way of life. What lurks in the shadows of paradise, however, is a life-changing illness she has struggled with in the past and now comes to the fore. They have made Portugal their home.
Will they be able to navigate the health system and succeed in getting her the urgent operation needed, to prevent her from spending the rest of her life in a wheelchair? This adds tension to an otherwise gentle, amusing, highly descriptive story, filled with wonderful observations, funny clashes of culture and an entertaining learning curve for all concerned.
One of the recent reviews for the book
Interesting, heart warming, funny, a true story of a British couple leaving everything behind to set up home in Portugal, only to face more life-changing decisions than they bargained for. I couldn’t stop reading. So refreshing to find a book like this, reminds me of Driving Over Lemons but with some very comic pets who threaten to steal the show with their antics. Wonderfully written.
