This book was DEFINITELY written for women, and the author makes that abundantly clear. I chose to read it because: A. Our family has moved several times in 25 years, including a year ago to a new state B. My wife thought she would like to read it. So, I will give my synopsis review first and I will add my wife's comments later. With that being said, if you're a man, you may not identify quite as much, but it will help you to better understand your wife, your family and other families who have had to uproot and move.
The book was VERY thorough, taking into account moving caused by every kind of conceivable circumstance, including job changes, upgrading, down grading, eviction, pastorates and military moves. The author has ministered to thousands of families over the last 20 years and has heard most of the situations which precipitate a move, and the upheaval that comes afterward. She offers a world of insight into the emotional turmoil that often accompanies the loss of family, friendships, security and familiarity. She also offers tips in the "Unpack Your Survival Box" section at the end of each chapter. It is a great resource for those who have moved or are getting ready to.
My wife finished this book in three days, and she does not like to read a lot. My wife is a military child, who had several moves in the first 15 years of her life, then married an aspiring minister, who traversed the US with her to another state, two weeks after our wedding. In her words, this book summed up and healed 48 years of moving in one book. She shed many tears through reading it. She heartily recommends it and said she felt like the author was talking to her personally, face to face and was identifying with all of the feelings that she has experienced over the years. If you need someone who understands what it's like to move, especially a lot of moves, then this is a good choice for you.
