ABOUT THE BOOK: 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. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Marianne Gilbert Finnegan is also the author of Memories of a Mischling: Becoming an American which describes her early years as a refugee from Nazi Germany. During her career she has been director of the Connecticut Humanities Council, teacher and administrator at Empire State College, and owner of the Griffin Bookshop in Portugal. She now teaches literature and writing at the Academy for Lifelong Learning in Saratoga Springs, New York and exchanges frequent visits with her three daughters and grandchildren.
