Aside from story-telling, she includes sections with sound advice about how to do to do it better than she did. How to imagine what you're going to do next, after all the boxes are unpacked? What about your aspirations about getting your own career going, finally? How about re-settling your children who are now the "global nomads" with very different values and study habits than many of their peers? How to manage your new relationship with your spouse who may or may not have a challenging new job?
I like Pascoe's work immensely and look forward to reading her other work.

Classic expat story, away from city and country for 12 years then back with young family in tow. However, my husband decided to continue working for his company in Hong Kong whilst I was settling us all into new life in Melbourne, Australia! Hmmmmm...
A valuable read and have recommended it to many friends still living the life OS.
