"It has been said that no one can understand the expat experience unless they have lived through it. This book may change that. The stories are very moving, describing the pain of separation and sacrifices made as well as the courage needed to step out into the unknown. Encouragement comes from the cultural riches gained and a warm welcome experienced in unexpected places."
Margaret Oertig, author of Going Local and Beyond Chocolate
"This is an absolute must read for anyone moving to a foreign country with their spouse and I think corporations should provide it in every transfer packet they give to their employees."
Martha Borst, author of Your Survival Strategies are Killing You
"Anyone who has ever moved abroad will recognize themselves in this wonderful book. Reading it will make you realize you are not alone".
