Life on a Rock
Kate lived on Highborne Cay, Exuma, in the Bahamas for five years. Most
people think this 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, Kate 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.
…the author paints a vivid, heartfelt and surprising picture of
Caribbean life. Albury introduces wonderfully drawn characters… She doesn’t
flinch from the uncomfortable truth of the Caribbean’s inequality and desperate
poverty… and that island life is less a breeze than a whirlwind.
“Life On A Rock” is available on line at Amazon.com (see below) and from local bookstores and boutiques throughout the Bahamas.
