This book is an encouragement to fully embrace expatriation in a conscious way - and hopefully also taking more often a decision that is less comfortable and fun in the moment but might reduce risks for individual family members on the long run!
The email exchange of the authors represents the first part of the book. The second part is a great source of recommendations and further reading tips given by experts in various fields related to expatriation most expat families will benefit from.
Highly recommend this book!
The authors exchange emails for six months, committing to honesty and vulnerability. The result is a window into their respective journeys of transition, parenting between worlds, and connecting with aging parents.
This is an important and first of its kind book in expat literature. As expats age and begin making decisions about what is next, this is sure to be a godsend and a must read.
I could not have read it at a better time.
Top international reviews
I recommend this book to, MOTHERS, Expats Mothers, and DADS of Expat Mothers/wives.
Although now empty nesters, the two authors reflect back on their lives (in their cases lived globally), the highs and the lows, ruminating on the potential influence of different events and decisions taken on later outcomes, for both themselves and their families.
A captivating read, with wide appeal due to the breadth of issues discussed that could touch so many. One feels privileged to have been allowed to share in this very personal dialogue.
