    Great, short and sweet. Loved reading your stories about St John and wish you had kept writing as I found myself wanting more. Excellent writing and a quick and easy read. This was a goodreads win.

    (Note: I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.) A short- very short; around 40 pages- memoir of the author's 25 years living and teaching on the island of St. John in the Virgin Islands.

N, P, HS, and so forth. Maybe you'll recognize them anyway. If you're unfamiliar, though, and hoping to learn about the island, you'll not find this an informative book.

    I won this book as a giveaway on Goodreads. First off, I was really excited because I love the island of St. John. But this book was entirely too short and really not that interesting. The author used letters for the names of friends and others in the book, which was annoying. She also really didn't introduce the characters she would just say B said this. Who the heck is B? Anyways, I just wish there was more, more stories, more depth, etc. I am a fast reader but this only took me like 20 minute I won this book as a giveaway on Goodreads.

    Wish there'd been more. It was too short. I preceded you as a teacher in the USVI by a decade, but was gone by the time you arrived. Didn't sound as if things had changed that much! Loved to hear the local names. Write another chapter or two. Wish there'd been more. It was too short. I preceded you as a teacher in the USVI by a decade, but was gone by the time you arrived.

    This is an entertaining little book of 41 pages. A collection of anecdotes from the authors time of living in St. John. A good book to have when you just have a little bit of time. You get to see a side of the island that most tourists often miss.
