Smorgasbord Cafe and Bookstore – New Author on the Shelves – #Portugal – #Memoir – Another Day in Paradise by Karen Telling

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

Caroline Mylon 5.0 out of 5 stars A LOVELY, HEART WARMING STORY! Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 September 2021

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.

  1. Welcome to Karen to the Smorgasbord. And this looks like a fun read that I’m adding to my list and heading over to message writer friend Marje who is in process of moving from the UK to Portugal. ❤

  2. Sal, not sure if I’m halucinating or not, but I’ve shared all today’s posts to our FB group and just hopped over there and only seeing this post share? I wonder if fakebook is at it again? 😦 ❤
