Review

Lisa Dailey weaves an extraordinary and fascinating tale of her journey around the world with her family. But this is far more than a travel story; it's a merciful, compassionate story of how traveling experiences can offer insight, perspective, and healing. As a therapist, I can say that I'd recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with profound loss or serious anxiety. It is a story of self-compassion, not self-pity, with moments of charm and humor that delight throughout. If you loved Cheryl Strayed's Wild, you'll adore this story.

-Betsy Graziani Fasbinder, author of Filling Her Shoes

Lisa Dailey is a woman after my own heart. She understands that both the discomfort and adventure of travel can change-and heal-us. In Square Up, in the throes of grief after several family deaths, Lisa and her husband, Ray, take their children around the world to places as far-flung as Cambodia, Myanmar, and Ghana. For the rest of her family, the trip is an opportunity to see the world and stretch their worldview (they visit a temple filled with rats and venture into the culinary enterprise of eating tarantulas, after all). And while all of this is riveting, indeed a treat for lovers of travel writing, what really captures the heart in this memoir is the way the narrator finds her way, after nearly being crushed by her recent losses, to peace of mind and self-compassion. Square Up is full of grace and love and gentle warmth-an authentic story of love of self, family, and, of course, travel.

-Cami Ostman, author of Second Wind: One Woman's Midlife Quest to Run Seven Marathons on Seven Continents

Lisa Dailey is a Montana native living in the Pacific Northwest. Writer by day and reader by night, she loves creating — through writing, photography, silversmithing, and cooking. Seeing so much of the world rendered her a travel addict and photography junkie. Along with her husband and two teenage sons, Lisa spent seven months traveling around the world, exploring 13 countries and more than 80 locations. The world serves as the backdrop for her memoir, Square Up.
