The women whose stories appear in this anthology have an easy time making friends and finding adventure. Their bravery in new circumstances, such as a woman venturing solo to Cambodia, gives the reader the itch to get out and experience the world. In the essay, “Million Dollar Questions” by Josalin Saffer, the writer wrestles with the reality of life in Cambodia, wondering “how to help and how not to hurt.”
"A Pink Suitcase" celebrates women who have respect and empathy for others, and demonstrate the travelers’ spirit. These women travelers reach for their personal best as they exhibit strength, compassion, fear, love, and contentment.
Not all are traveling alone. In the essay “Thailand’s Lost Children,” Janna Graber is a mom is reporting on the local child sex trade. She brings her young daughter along to experience the full range of reality in a complex culture, so different from the security and safety of home.
Another terrific essay “Our Life Afloat” by Diane Selkirk, takes the reader along as a young couple with a small child spend sixteen days at sea in a 40-foot catamaran.
Perhaps the most unusual pilgrimage is a woman who travels to chase a memory in a tiny town on the coast of Spain. Along the way, she realizes food was always a part of her fond memories of time with family. Others in this rich anthology experience love or loss, fear or bravery, and all surprise us by their energy and grace.
Each of the contributors in this anthology presents an element of diversity, either in their point-of-view, or in their impressive author bio, reflecting their broad exposure to the world. Travel changes people, and their enthusiasm for adventure just might help you set sail for your own fabulous experience. "A Pink Suitcase" is waiting for you.
Women pack more than clothes and toiletries when they travel. They pack their hopes, dreams, loves, and fears and bring them along on the journey. In this newest anthology edited by Janna Graber, the reader is taken along for the ride and comes away touched in unexpected ways. No matter the destination, the learning happens along the way. Whether you're a travel fanatic, or just dream about world travels, this book is pure pleasure to read. I highly recommend it!
