Dreams: An Odyssey of Love and Mystery by Otilia Greco is a romance novel set on a beautiful Greek island in 1986. The story unravels with Nina taking time off from her busy life in Portugal and taking a holiday in her favorite island destination. Sitting for hours alone on the balcony of her hotel room, fixed on the familiar sight of a small sailing boat anchored in the bay, she wonders if anyone lives there. Widowed twice, her life has been filled with ups and downs. She stays in her favorite hotel owned by the Greek couple Demetrios and Penelope who have become her friends. What follows is the telling of a fascinating story that will reunite her with a man she briefly met years ago. She has come to love Greek culture and learned that almost every person on the island has a unique history. Will the ancient Greek gods and the mysterious sea determine her destiny?
Otilia Greco’s Dreams: An Odyssey of Love and Mystery is a captivating love story. Although set in contemporary times, readers can get a look inside the lives of the island’s inhabitants and Greek culture. The author’s literary writing style is lyrical and descriptive, and the characters are exciting and well-developed. The plot is also woven together in a very creative way. I find the main characters enigmatic but still relatable; perhaps the main reason it’s an absorbing read. With all the elements of a great love story, this is a must-read for lovers of romantic novels!
