Life on a Rock

A Bahamas Out-Island Adventure by K. A. Albury

Life on a rock by K.A. AlburyKate 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.
