Denise Fainberg had visions of paradise when she set off for a small Fijian island. But after she arrived, a hurricane developed. Then she began to fear for her safety, and paradise didn’t seem so idyllic. “Why, oh why, hadn’t I been content just to go somewhere like Cape Cod?” she writes in Sunday’s New York Times. “Why had I been seduced by the romantic idea of a South Pacific island? But this was foolishness; I’d experienced hurricanes on the Cape. Still, it had seemed different with a sturdy roof over one’s head and all America’s rescue systems in the background. Here, it was just us, the huts and the sea.”
