Cheap Ticket to Paradise

Lucinda Fleeson discusses her new book “Waking Up In Eden” at Magers & Quinn Booksellers, Saturday, July 11, at 6:00pm.

Like so many of us, Lucinda Fleeson wanted to escape what had become a routine life. So, she quit her big-city job, sold her suburban house, and moved halfway across the world to the island of Kauai to work at the National Tropical Botanical Garden. Imagine a one-hundred-acre garden estate nestled amid ocean cliffs, rain forests, and secluded coves. Exotic and beautiful, yes, but as Fleeson awakens to this sensual world, exploring the island’s food, beaches, and history, she encounters an endangered paradise–the Hawaii we don’t see in the tourist brochures.
