A great book to curl up with over winter nights or take to the beach on your next holiday.
*I received a complimentary copy for review purposes; however, all opinions are my own.*
And the other essays do too... we learn about rituals of pregnancy, practices of birthing, customs regarding family, in many more countries, all told by women who live there, or lived there at the time they are describing. Some have lived in 11 countries in just a few years, others are happily settled in whatever country they migrated to first. All of the essays are beautifully told, moving, amusing, lovely reading.
I am a long way from being a young mother on her way to a country other than my own...my children are grown, even grandchildren are grown, some have children, two have moved very far away from home. But I can't wait to share this book with them, and in this new age of people moving far and wide, I hope many will read these stories and be comforted... foreign cultures are indeed "foreign," but sometimes they are enriching, and wonderful too. And not so foreign after all.
Oh and if you are one of the people considering moving away, or who have moved, there are websites and Facebook pages that Lisa Ferland and her friends have created for you to explore, join if you wish, and share your own story.
But I don’t need to imagine what it might be like if I were actually pregnant in Asia. That’s because I just picked up Knocked Up Abroad Again, a new anthology edited by Lisa Ferland that considers the experience of expecting or raising children in another country through the eyes of 26 different writers. It's a terrific collection and definitely worth a read!
