The follow up takes us from 2006 until 2014, and includes some extremely tough years. Years when they battled the recession and lost almost everything they had worked so hard for. Years when they struggled against difficulties in restoring their old house and coped with the loss of one member of the group of five who originally arrived on the island so full of hope.
But it also tells the story of how they slowly began to turn things around, how they gave birth to a completely new business, transformed themselves from couch potatoes into Ironman triathletes and it charts their continuing adventures and new discoveries on the island that will always be their home.
Sometimes gritty and controversial, the author makes no apologies for telling it how it is, but there always remains the undercurrent of the humour we saw in the first book.
