Why dont you... run away with the gypsies? Ten-hour shifts in a high-end department store and catering to snooty customers... Nellie Bennetts life wasnt supposed to turn out this way.
But maybe all she needs to do is infuse a little passion into her routinethrough flamenco dance lessons, for instance. What Nellie doesnt realize is that flamenco is not just a danceits a way of life that seems much more enticing than her depressing retail gig. So she packs her suede dance shoes and leaves everything she knows behind, flying halfway around the world to seek the authentic experience in Seville, where the dark-eyed gypsy boys and mouth-watering tapas are enough to make Nellie want to stay in Spain forever.
And why shouldnt she? Only in Spain is a foot-stomping, full-on firecracker of a memoircrackling with energy, food, dance, gypsies, and lovethat will capture your heart with the first Olé! A vivid, entertaining memoir...
