As the book blurb states, "An Embarassment of Mangoes" is remniscent of "Under the Tuscan Sun" in that it is a travel memoir about a women who steps away from her "real life" of working her job and the dealing with other everyday stresses. The author and her husband take 2 years off from their work and set sail from Toronto to the Caribbean. The book really made me want to do the same...especially now when I am bogged down with deadlines and too much work at the office. I NEED A VACATION!!! The author did a great job of recounting their experiences sailing and describing the character, charms and food of each island they visited. The end of each chapter had several recipes of food that she made on that leg of the journey.
this book was really slow. really really slow.
