The Guesthouse

A woman of Quaker background from Pennsylvania meets a man of Mormon background from Wyoming and their relationship flouishes. Both have demanding and stressful careers which ultimately lead to burnout. When that stress threathens to adversely affect their relationship and marraige, they decide to quit both their jobs, move to the Caribbean, and do something they know nothing about by owning and managing a bed and breakfast guesthouse. This "running away to join the circus" proves duanting, difficult, surprising and rewarding, but not as financially successful as they might have liked. However, the success in terms of their personal relationship, as well as a myriad of relationships formed with local people and others from around the world, more than compensate for any disappointment from their lack of business acumen. What may have been a loss on one hand, results in a win in the long run.
