Book Lovers Getaway
A Turks & Caicos Writers Workshop April 10-12, 2017

Abby Fabiaschi, author of I LIKED MY LIFE, will lead fellow book lovers in creative writing sessions at The Somerset, April 10-12. Book lovers will learn how to put passion to paper as they search for inspiration on the No. 1 Beach in the World according to TripAdvisor.

I Liked My Life

Abby Fabiaschi’s fictional novel, I LIKED MY LIFE unfurls the story of the Starlings, a seemingly happy family whose matriarch, Madeline, dies tragically in what is deemed a suicide. Madeline was a model wife and mother who chose to stay at home after many successful years in the corporate world; she was the glue that held her family together. This story is certain to leave you pondering: If you live your life for other people, can you truly be happy? And what becomes of those you served once you’re gone?
