Lured by tawny beaches, blossoming almond trees, dazzling white villas, golf courses and fishing villages, Marianne Gilbert Finnegan and her husband set out in mid-life to build a home and open an international bookshop in the Algarve, the sunny southern coast of Portugal. They find the beauty they expected and establish warm new friendships across national boundaries. But their journey also leads 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 sensitive memoir that speaks to the longing for adventure and the belief that building a new future is possible at any age.
