Desiring Paradise by Karen Schlesinger

27 Sep

Many people toy with the idea of packing up their lives and moving to a remote island in the tropics. This book relates the hilarious tale of two middle-class New Englanders who succumbed to that dream. The Paradise they desired is the beautiful and sometimes whacky island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Life’s misadventures caused havoc, but these folks persevered. How they got to Paradise will inspire the most jaded reader to believe that any dream is possible.

A quick read that will be enjoyable to anyone who loves St. John or any tropical island that seems like the perfect place to live. A lot of detail is given to the process of moving and the couple’s life upheaval. Do not expect a lot of detailed information about the island itself. 1999, 288 pages.
