A riveting rendition of the opposing forces in human behaviour set in the harshness and beauty in the wilds of Central America. This is a compelling read cantering through the horrors of domestic abuse while seducing you with the magic and mystery of a primitive world.The character Alexis is a brave survivor of an emotional journey, a fictional heroine created by a talented writer. Yet as this is based on a true story the real strength and courage is that of the author for publishing her very personal perspective. There were cruel moments when I was forced to stop reading and take a very deep breath. A book that awakens your every emotion most certainly must be ranked as excellent.

I read and thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful book. Having lived in Belize for 27 years (1985 to present) I can relate to many of the stories within the story. The settings and happenings are authentic and interesting.
I can highly recommend this book. Especially those of us of that generation. (Baby boomers.)
My only complaint - and it isn't really a complaint - is that is wasn't 2 or 3 books so I could keep reading!

About the author (2007)

Nancy R. Koerner was born in eastern Ohio and raised in northwestern Pennsylvania. In 1976, she and her husband and infant son moved to the rainforests of Central America as modern-day pioneers – seeking what should have been a utopian jungle paradise. But instead, Nancy experienced untold hardships in a primitive land including earthquake, flood, fire, and hurricane. There she learned about the darker side of human nature and survived unspeakable domestic violence at the hands of her husband. Although Belize was a country of rare tropical splendor, she was completely isolated in a foreign land with no options for escape. Only her inner spiritual strength and exceptional resourcefulness would get her through. Her book, Belize Survivor: Darker Side of Paradise, an autobiographical novel based on her own true story, is uniquely inspiring and empowering – a story for all women who have faced and triumphed over impossible odds.
