One-Way Ticket chronicles the true story of how Melinda and her husband Terry uprooted their fast-paced lives in New Jersey and relocated to Anguilla, an island in the Caribbean that The New York Times has called the "British St. Bart’s."
Imagine locking your door for the last time, driving to the airport, and flying away to paradise—just the two of you, two bags, and two cats. That’s exactly what these corporate executives did in the early 2000s.
Each chapter highlights their challenging journey, from the daunting delays and realities of building their villa on the island’s turquoise shores, to the exhausting ordeal of selling in New Jersey post-9/11—all while continuing their endeavors in the medical devices and pharmaceuticals industries.
The stress and intensity of working and leaving New Jersey shape the backdrop for increasingly tantalizing trips to savor the promising beauty and tranquility of their new home, far away. Theirs is a story of determination and joy, as they realize a dream that has been more fulfilling than they ever thought possible.
You really can leave it all behind and not look back. They did. It just took a while.
