The Calypso Years
by Janet Haack
Who hasn’t dreamed of moving to a tropical island and slowing the pace of life?

The author and husband together with their four young children ages two to nine did just that in 1965 when they took up residence on the West Indian island of Grenada. For the next fourteen years, like the syncopation of Calypso, their lives played out in that rhythm of the Caribbean, providing both humorous and anxious moments in an unquestionably rich and satisfying experience.

Janet Haack chronicles the fourteen topsy-turvy years they and their four children spent living on the twelve-by-twenty mile island of Grenada in the Caribbean, in The Calypso Years.
