Sunrise at Monsaraz: Portugal Dreamin , by Bruce R. Roberts, is a delicious, colourful exploration of Portugal as experienced by Katherine and Ethan Ferguson, an older couple who are not yet retired. They are not prepared for the emotional impact of such a journey, the people they meet, the mystical views of sea and fields, the wonderful food. Nor are they prepared for a major life change as they come to a crossroad in their lives.
The culture, history, architecture, and gastronomy of Portugal are experienced with gusto by this couple, who soon take to vagabonding as a way of life. What began as a holiday slowly becomes a journey of self-discovery. Katherine buys some paints and begins to express a different side of herself.
They meet Francesco and Marianna, a young Portuguese couple whose lives are in a state of flux. They also come across a wonderful villa that is for sale. Katherine and Ethan continue to review their lives and to discuss options, as various possibilities open up for them. But best of all, they find that they have taken out a new lease on life.
