    Antonella, I’m looking forward to reading your book. I’d also be interested in reviewing it on my blog. Expat wives and how they adjust is definitely a fascinating topic, but not much has been written it.

    When I was a “trailing spouse” in the 1970s, ’80s, and early ’90s, as far as I know, the term hadn’t yet been invented. We were just expat wives.

    I had to do a lot of research for my first novel, Tiger Tail Soup, which was set in China in the 1930s and ’40s. I’d visited China couple of times by the time I started writing it, but I’d never lived there, and certainly not so many years ago. Now I’m working on a novel about an expat wife. It’s set in countries I’ve lived in, so at least I don’t have to worry about research.

    So of course I had to buy the book, which I’ve just done, and my Kindle and I now have a date 🙂

    Interesting read! I wish I had a kindle, but I have a Nook. Maybe there is a way to buy the book. Will have to put that on my summer reading list (:

      Hi Holly! The book is available also in paperback edition. Amazon just needs some days to link it to the book page!
