I had the opportunity to read a review copy of a Island Journeys, a book on how the island way of life impacts one's life at home and away.
The very mention of islands has me thinking of beautiful beaches and lively weather, a resort trip, scenes of carnival and calypso music playing. Images of cricket teams and Machel Montano singing. A getaway from every day life elsewhere in the world.
But the author Carlisle Richardson, a native of St Kitts and Nevis, is quick to point out that there is more to these island states that meets the eye. “I understand why tropical islands are sometimes considered paradise,” he says. A United Nations economic-affairs officer, he shares,“As a native islander, I feel and believe in this sentiment myself. But I also know that island living presents challenges that are much more complex than lying in the sand or enjoying a cool island breeze.”
