This was a delightful glimpse into the lives of two very different people who became friends and were both better for it. A rare friendship that changed their lives and maybe changed mine a bit too. (It was brought to my attention that everyone has their own story and if you don't know what it is, don't assume you know them or dare to judge them.) There were editing problems and problems with present tense and sometimes the flow was interrupted with a tiny bit of confusion but the story itself was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It took me into a world I didn't know existed as well as to a place I would love to visit one day. Her Greece sounds heavenly but not perfect, just like the real world. With a bit of tweaking this would be a fabulous book, as it is, it is an eye-opening, uplifting and wonderful book. I loved it and would recommend it.
This was a very enjoyable story. It's a story of 2 people who have a solid friendship - it was just that, a friendship. The historical aspect was interesting and the author showed how difficult life was for some at that time. But the main characters were able to overcome the obstacles and it was a very real story. It is written very well, even with the few grammatical errors. The ending was unpredictable & a great end to a great story.
I am very particular about books I read and more often than not,I start a book,read a few pages and then stop reading it because it doesn't hold my interest. However, The Illegal Gardener kept me interested and captivated from page one to the end. I actually hated to have the story end.
The characters were so interesting and the friendship that developed was fascinating. I also could almost feel the mood and sights and sounds of Greece.
Great job,Sara Alexi---keep up the good work and I look forward to reading another of your books.
