Lifting the Lid on Living in the Dominican Republic
In What About Your Saucepans? Lindsay de Feliz gave up marriage and a successful career in the UK to follow her dreams as a scuba diving instructor in the Dominican Republic. She met and married her Dominican man and went on an incredible adventure involving political corruption and being shot in her own home.
Life After My Saucepans continues the story with Lindsay and Danilo living in hiding, away from the beaches and tourist resorts, in the mountainous, remote, sparsely populated north-west of the country. Will Danilo return to politics, will they turn their lives around and will they adapt to their new surroundings?
While visitors will recognise the descriptions of local men who scam foreign women (sanky pankys), they will also experience a different side of the country from Lindsay’s colourful narrative where the friendly, yet quirky, nature of the Dominican people is uncovered.
Full of incident, adventure, laughter and tears Lindsay describes her day-to-day life with her indomitable husband Danilo, as she comes to realise this is where she has always meant to be.

Honest, gutsy and packed with warmth and infectious humour.
Fans of What About Your Saucepans? – both book and blog – won’t be
disappointed. The simple pleasures and irritations of life in the Dominican
Republic and the tragedies and triumphs, both great and small, are described
with the honesty and deadpan humour that Lindsay’s readers have come to
know and love.
