The Explosive Nature of Friendship

(The third book in the Greek Village series)
A novel by


From INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLING AUTHOR Sara Alexi, who ranks as one of's TOP Literary Fiction authors

The third book in the Greek Village Collection

The Explosive Nature of Friendship explores the tensions that exist between two lifelong friends.

Mitsos, now an old man, leads a solitary and ordered life, which is interrupted by the arrival of his young nephew, whom he reluctantly agrees to babysit.

To amuse the child, he recounts tales from his own youth, which are both romantic and tragic, while also being funny, and touching.

In the telling of these tales he is prompted to reassess the past and to come to terms with the events of a single day that has haunted him for twenty years, and all that led up to it.

A letter gives him a chance to rectify his biggest wrong and gain the peace he is seeking.

But is what he has sought for the last twenty years what he wants now? Is he the man he thought he was?

Set against a backdrop of a small Greek farming village, comedy and tragedy are present in equal measures.

Sara transports you to a land of sea and sun as she explores what it means to be human, and fallible. The book examines the nature of friendship, and how our choices and our perceptions of our place in society can define us.

Praise for The Explosive Nature of Friendship

Not only is the story rich in content, but the manner in which Alexi writes opens windows onto a culture of Greece as warmly related as anyone before. The book is not a heavy read - it is that kind of book to savor on a few sunny afternoons and evenings. If Greece is anything like the manner in which Sara Alexi shares it then it is high on the list for journeys in the future. - Grady Harp

It was a real page-turner and evocative of a lovely life style perhaps lost to many of us in the modern world. - Dad Pad "K60PAD" (Wales, UK), Amazon

If you have made the trip to Sara's two previous visits to the village, you are going to be highly pleased with the third. We find the familiar faces and places as it gets even deeper into the backstory of its characters. - Paul Howard, Goodreads

Another fab book by this very talented author Sara Alexi. Within the first chapter of this book I was transported to that Greek village. I even felt as though the hot sun was on my skin. It's a book that you could read anytime, anywhere. Sara has a way of writing that enthrals me. Her books are very easy to read and the storylines are lovely and this one was no exception. I dont think you would be disappointed having read The Explosive Nature of Friendship but you will be disappointed that you have finished it. I would recommend this book to anyone. - Kittycate, Amazon

I think the author has created a great world, full of colourful characters (both main and supporting) with interesting ways of life, all set in a beautiful surrounding. I can't wait to get on to the next one... - Kath, Goodreads

This is a brilliant series of books, and this (the third) did not disappoint. I love the characters, I love the setting and I love the story. - Mrs CFC, 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...
