Are you tired of an overly materialistic lifestyle? Do you ever dream about escaping the Orange County rat race by moving to a tropical island? I’m not courageous enough to make such a move myself, but I just read a book by someone who is. Sonia Marsh, along with her husband and three sons, packed up their belongings and relocated to a rustic beach house in Belize in search of a more satisfying life.
Sonia Marsh recounts their adventures (and misadventures) in her new book Freeways to Flip-Flops: A Family’s Year of Gutsy Living on a Tropical Island. Having never lived abroad, I enjoyed reading about Sonia’s struggles to adjust to a new culture and a new life. She candidly describes a family in turmoil, made worse at times by the dramatic decision to relocate. Despite their trials and tribulations, Sonia and her family find themselves reconnecting in unexpected ways.
Sonia Marsh will speak about her book and her experiences at the El Toro Branch Library on Friday December 7th, at 1pm. This program is free and open to the general public. For more information please call 949-855-8173.
