"A Different Kind of Life" is a beautiful tale of Jon Andrews, a harried university professor from Montreal who leaves his good job behind in the big city to start a quiet life in rural Prince Edward Island. While living in PEI, Jon befriends many local residents. The author's descriptions of the scenic pastoral landscape of the PEI are phenomenal, as is the overall story itself. I highly recommend "A Different Kind of Life" to anyone who seeks a light, easy-to-read story.
