Waking Up in Eden: in pursuit of an impassioned life on an imperiled island

From Margaret Mezzacapo

Waking Up in Eden:  in pursuit of an impassioned life on an imperiled island

Author: Lucinda Fleeson.

The bare bones of the story are the same as those of Margaret Roach’s recent biography [And I shall have some peace there: trading in the fast lane for my own dirt road] middle-aged woman flees big-city life for a more solitary existence in a remote area and learns to garden. However, the similarities end there – Fleeson’s straightforward approach was much more enjoyable than Margaret’s metaphysical ramblings. (Granted, Hawaii is a little more exotic than upstate New York.) Enjoyed this one quite a bit.
