The latest novel in the Greek Village Collection follows Sarah who travels to the village in Greece for the wedding of her youngest son to Helena. 'This was an emotional book, of loss and regret and of the chance to change things and make a new start.' 'This story is so rich in content that you really feel for the characters and go on a journey with them. I am starting my own collection of pebbles ! A must read for anyone, anytime or anyplace.' 'This is Sara Alexi's seventh book in the 'Greek Village Collection' and is as good if not better than the first one! (No need to read in order.) The story is about loss, regret and the belief that you can be whoever you want to be...' 'Excellent writer , excellent book’ 'This is one of those books where you just don't want it to end.’ - Micheal Finlayson (Amazon top 1000 reviewer.) 'Her storytelling is so good it is easy to ignore the depth of her characterisation,' 'After reading this I have to say the Greek Village Series just gets better and better.' 'Was enthralled by the twists and turns; particularly at the end.' 'A well told story, real and rounded characters and a Greek background that is so well written you can feel the sun and smell that wonderful warm, baked earth and sea salt scent that that is unique to Greece.' 'The Characters, the descriptions and the whole atmosphere that Sara Alexi provides, a truly great storyteller.' 'This book is so evocative that I wanted to start reviewing it even before I’d finished the first few pages. The characters are so clear that I thought I knew them immediately I met them but, as in life, surprises are thrown at us at every turn. Any event described by Sara Alexi is so clear as to be almost real – I was a fly on the wall at many events throughout the book, thinking on occasion "Wow! Didn’t see THAT coming!"' 'This book is one giving hope to many who think their life, as it is, is all there is. It made me very reflective of my own life and left me wondering...' 'And again, Sara Alexi writes with perfect pace to have the reader slow down to the pace of the village, experience the dryness and heat and beauty of the place; I found myself literally relaxing, slowing myself down as I read and would stop from time to time to consider the meaning of life and the wisdoms shared. This is such an intelligent writer and thinker ...'

About the Author:

Sara Alexi was born in Oxford, England. She has travelled widely and now splits her time between her home in England and a tiny rural village in the Peloponnese, in Greece, where she is (very slowly!) renovating a ruined stone farmhouse, whilst observing the Greek way of life and absorbing the culture, to enrich her vision for both writing and painting. Sara began writing later in life. In school English lessons were a time of confusion, books indecipherable hieroglyphics. Dyslexia was not well understood then and no support was available. The joy of reading and writing were cancelled by the teacher's red pen ... Despite her dyslexia Sara qualified as a psychotherapist and ran her own practice for years. Her artistic nature was, at that time, confined to painting and she exhibited widely. In a casual conversation with a client she discovered that Agatha Christie, Jules Verne and Hans Christian Andersen were all dyslexic, and Sara's perspective changed. The world of fiction opened to her with this shift in perception and she has been a prolific writer ever since. Her 'Greek Village Series' has been very well received and provides a keenly observed, compassionate insight into the Greek people and culture, and the human condition in general. Watch this space for the next in the series, coming soon!
