JourneyWoman Book Club: An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude

June 16 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude” by Ann Vanderhoof

Our June Book Club selection is “An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude” – by Ann Vanderhoof (2005). 

Under the Tuscan Sun meets the wide-open sea . . . An Embarrassment of Mangoes is a delicious chronicle of leaving the type-A lifestyle behind — and discovering the seductive secrets of life in the Caribbean. Who hasn’t fantasized about chucking the job, saying goodbye to the rat race, and escaping to some exotic destination in search of sun, sand, and a different way of life? Canadians Ann Vanderhoof and her husband, Steve did just that. In the mid-1990s, they were driven, forty-something professionals who were desperate for a break from their deadline-dominated, career-defined lives. So they quit their jobs, rented out their house, moved onto a 42-foot sailboat called Receta (“recipe,” in Spanish), and set sail for the Caribbean on a two-year voyage of culinary and cultural discovery.
