Cross with her father, Abby, 17, boards a flight to Greece, but gets hopelessly lost and ends up in the wrong village.
Alone, with very little money, no Greek and no way to contact her friend Jackie, who has lined up a bar job for her, Abby realises she has to stand on her own two feet for the first time…
She meets Stella, who runs the local ouzeri - a rough and ready eatery were farmers gather to drink and take refuge from their domestic lives.
Stella does not need a naive young English girl hanging around, and the ouzeri is not the glamorous bar that Abby had bargained for.
But when events throw them together, the situation brings to the boil tensions that have been brewing for years, the ripples drawing in other people in the village, threatening Abby's ability to ever leave, culminating in shocking unforeseen events and the uncovering of dark secrets that change peoples' thinking about themselves and others permanently.
Praise for The Gypsy's Dream
The Gypsy`s Dream, by Sara Alexi was a wonderful surprise. The writing was fresh and the style flowed well. It was almost as if I took a vacation in Greece for a week. I really enjoyed the characters and the story was full of life lessons. This was by far the best book I`ve read in years. - Wade Faubert, Amazon
Sara Alexi's Greek Village series just keeps getting better and better. - Alexes, Goodreads
I purchased the first in the series oh a whim, and all the rest because I simply had to. I visited Greece in my mind thanks to these well told stories. I highly recommend this series and her delightful characters. - Debra Damone, Amazon
Book 4 is as wonderful and heartwarming as the previous 3. The people in the small Greek village Ms. Alexi writes about drew me in immediately and made me feel as if they were friends. - funky_town "MaryAnn" (NM, US)
I have enjoyed every book in this series....and being greedy I want more! I especially loved the hidden joke with the lawyers...you Ms. Alexi are a treasure! - Didi58 (Michigan)
