More About This Book

Overview

In the early seventies, the anti-establishment counterculture evolved into a new movement of health and agricultural purists. Rebelling against the politics and pollution of the U.S., these young people sought to create their own natural paradise outside its borders. This is the story of one such expatriated American, a starry-eyed wild child who searches for a fantasy lifestyle and gets more than she bargains for. The storyline, a colorful tapestry of romantic adventure set in the jungles of Belize, Central America, is flavored with vivid imagery, picturesque characters, wild animals, and Mayan archaeological intrigue. But it is also a compelling story of a maturing young woman and her battle with the darker side of human nature, of innocence lost, deception, infidelity, and heartbreaking exile. Full of poignant moral dilemma, it is a story of one woman's survival, of exceptional courage, strength in overcoming adversity, spiritual growth, and eventual triumph.

    Was going to meet the author & wanted to read it ahead of time.

    I couldn't put the book down because it is such compelling reading. Was very impressed with how descriptive her writing was. It was like I was seeing, smelling & feeling everything along with her. She really scared me about what can go on behind the outer smiles. Very much looking forward to her sequal.

    Compeling novel

    Well written, suspensful, compeling story. It covers the flower children generation, people who went out to the world to live a better life and found the dark side of paradise. Alexis, the main character, is a courageous woman who wants to believe in her husband's promises. Max is a grandiose man who reestablishes control using violence. She endures his abuse for the sake of their children and finds refuge in her artistry and creativity.
