Sara Alexi - Why I Wrote this Book

These days we all spend a significant part of our lives working in conditions or situations that are not always in harmony with our well-being.

Often this is unavoidable.

My question in this book is - is it? What would we have to do to escape what we have been led to believe is the inevitable? And would we be willing to do what it takes to make such a break?

The Art of Becoming Homeless is about an English woman who has followed the rules for years, and who is now successful but unfulfilled, and a Greek man who is just setting out and trying to follow the rules, but just cannot manage it, and has quit his job.

They meet and their mutual dissatisfaction helps them to question each other, and in the process they each find a path that will take them each to a more satisfying way of living.

Praise for The Art of Becoming Homeless

Her books make be feel like I am in Greece and are all so well written, they just leave you wanting more. - Mrs D Sage, Amazon

A heart-warming story, beautifully written - like all of Sara's books! As a woman with a Greek background as well as a law degree, this book was right up my street! I also have family in Athens, and felt that Sara described the atmosphere and culture there brilliantly. Fantastic characters and a solid plot - a must read. - Ekaterina Botziou, Goodreads

This is my first time reading Sara Alexi and OH, WHAT A FIND! This book has fantastic characters, plot and the surroundings of Greece and England! I cannot wait to read more of her books! I believe you will love them as much as I do! - Diane Galburt, Goodreads

What a lovely story! I started reading it on mainland Greece and completed it on a nearby island where I quite expected to meet Michelle and Dino - they had become so real. - Mary, Amazon

If you enjoyed 'The Pact' or 'The Story Teller' by Jodi Picoult, 'Necessary Lies' by Diane Chamberlain, 'The Thread' or 'The Island' by Victoria Hislop or 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce you'll love this book...
