Expatriating to a new country is exciting, but it can also be daunting.
If you are about to embark on your first trip as a ‘trailing spouse’, then you could probably do with some reassurance from someone who knows the ropes.
In case you don’t meet that ‘someone’ immediately, a copy of Expat Women: Confessions, will make an excellent first companion.
Expat Women: Confessions, 50 Answers to your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad, is the brainchild of Andrea Martins & Victoria Hepworth who are also the founders of the website of the same name.
Confessions is presented in a question and answer format and focuses on the most common problems faced by expat women every day.
Issues like dealing with loneliness and coping with the loss of professional identity, as well as the more serious problems of alcoholism, domestic violence and infidelity are all dealt with sensitively.
Both authors are seasoned expats in their own right, as well as expat wives with children, and with the benefit of their combined experience, each question is answered constructively, providing practical advice and information along the way.
A comprehensive Resources section includes an invaluable list of books and websites for the rookie, or veteran expat alike.
There isn’t much that Andrea Martins & Victoria Hepworth don’t know about relocating worldwide and Expat Women: Confessions is their latest gift to the expat sisterhood.
