I enjoyed the book but I felt a bit betrayed by the authors, they are 2 east coast overachievers pretending that they enjoy island life when in fact they were living their east coast life of 14 hour days in the islands. I have lived in the islands and these were the people we would laugh at. The Authors are now motivational speakers, not true island people!

The Blanchards had a successful gourmet food business in the NE that they sold and moved to an island to open a restaurant. It was a stuggle to say the least but they were successful till a storm almost wiped them out. Today the place is well known and they have a second book out.
