I thought she described her childhood very well, making you want to go to the places, drink warm chai, and enjoy the group friendships that you have in other countries. She speaks of hellos and many goodbyes, of fitting in and not fitting in at all. She talks about people not believing her when she tells stories—true stories—about her life.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It is well written and shows how most missionary kids really, truly feel about their lives. The author balances her quest for identity and belonging with her God-given blessings. She has a wanderlust borne out of her traveling background, and she gladly shares it with her own children.
I found this a valuable book. If you ever desire to understand third culture kids in a Christian context, this is a good book to read. It’s fun, too! I heartily recommend it to any woman in ministry, as well as military women.
I've recommended this book to my whole family, and several of them have bought it and read it already. I plan to recommend it to expat friends in my community, too. Thank you, Marilyn, for putting into words what we all go through!
Marilyn roots her essays in her own experience as a TCK, but her vignettes speak truth about what all TCKs experience. Moreover, the book lives up to its title in multiple ways--not only does Marilyn live between worlds, but she seeks to bridge worlds for others.
I would highly recommend this book to readers who live or raise children in a cross-cultural setting--it's easy to read and relatable!
