Book Description

8 July 2010
'Home Keeps Moving' follows Heidi and her missionary family on their many moves through the eyes of a Third Culture Kid (TCK) and the unique phenomena of having four very different home countries to relate to. It tells the true story of being catapulted from continent to continent constantly: leaving friends and starting all over again, her unquenchable search for a 'home' and sense of belonging in this world, her desire for a life-partner with the odds all but against her due to constantly relocating (even into adulthood). You will laugh and cry along with Heidi as she recounts hilarious and heart-breaking tales from her childhood as West blends with East. That is the true beauty of Heidi's upbringing, it crossed borders and defied logic but she lacked for nothing.

This book provides a brilliant and frank insight into the experiences and challenges of growing up as a Third Culture Kid (TCK). I am not a TCK myself, but this book really has opened my eyes to the issues TCKs face in growing up - not only having to deal with finding themselves, but also constantly having to adapt to new cultures, new situations and new people, without a strong sense of `home' in the traditional sense of the word. The book is well written and explores a number of issues TCKs face, from answering simple questions such as 'Where are you from?' to education, family, relationships and rebellion. The book is interspersed with contributions from a number of TCKs, which makes it both interesting to read and adds breadth to the depth with which Heidi explores the many facets of growing up as a TCK. This book should definitely be read by parents of TCKs, their teachers, family and friends and TCKs themselves as it will enhance understanding of TCKs and help them better understand themselves. Well done Heidi for writing such a readable and needed book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You NEED this book! 27 April 2011
By Trubbs
Format:Paperback
Whether you have 1,2,4 or even more cultures in your background you will identify with home keeps moving. People move around the earth more easily in todays world and as a 'citizen of the world' myself and quite widely travelled I am impressed with the depth and honesty that Heidi writes with. The stories and accounts of Heidi's life will make you laugh, cry and inspire you to think wider than you have before. An excellent read- I did not put this down! Thanks Heidi for sharing your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful Read 21 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
Awesome book Heidi, congratulations. Once I picked it up I didn't want to put it down again. It was a brilliant account of your life so far and it really opened my eyes to the massive highs and lows of the life of a TCK. I really enjoyed that you added in other testimonials that shared their different takes on life. I think this book will offer understanding and comfort to those who are a TCK and for the people who are close to them, it's also a great read for anyone with an interest in travel and people.

By Haru
Format:Paperback
Thank you, Heidi, on behalf of TCKs all over the world, for putting your extraordinary life experience to print. Calling all global readers: If you are at once unique and a citizen of the world, separate and yet united, or someone who has lived just one day outside your comfort zone, you will find Heidi, a person to whom you can relate...

Having a few friends who have grown up as TCK's, this book was a great help to understand these friends of mine a little better. The book is also challenging narrowminded people who seem to fear cultures different than their own. It makes you wanna embrace the world in all it's diversity a bit more. Highly recommended.
