Review; Life On A Rock by K. A. Albury
Description of the BookKate lived on Highborne Cay, Exuma, in the Bahamas for five years. Most people think it would be a vacation paradise to live and work on a small island, away from the stress and confusion of everyday life. This book will tell otherwise. It is the true story of a woman who learned about courage, fortitude and patience as she continually faced extraordinary and often dangerous situations in a place that had no doctor, no police nor other emergency personnel. Her everyday experiences in an isolated surrounding provide excitement and give a fresh and thought-provoking view of unusual events that were part of her life on this tiny, unprotected island in the Caribbean. From an armed robbery, drug traders and illegal immigrants, to medical mishaps and disasters at sea, Alison learned in those short five years that she and her husband, Peter, would be forced to step forward to protect the island and its people. In their jobs, they would need to cope—or quit.
My Thoughts on the Book
It was a book with food for thought in terms of taking a leap of faith and go on an adventure. Some episodes mentioned were a bit hilarious, while others were heartbreaking, nervewrecking or sad. Life On A Rock gives a glimpse into their lives in Highborne Cay. I can imagine their lives were a struggle at times, but I would guess it was a bit of an adventure too.
