Takes you on a journey
24 May 2014
While this must not have been an easy book to write, Laura Stephens makes it an easy one to read. She draws you deftly into her experiences as a “trailing spouse” and, while some of those are negative, they are authentic and honestly portrayed. Impressively, Stephens manages to maintain both narrative pace and an uplifting tone as she recreates in crisp detail the world that changed around her. As it says in the publisher’s note, it may be a book about depression but it is not a depressing book.
For anyone interested either in the experience of moving to a new country or in the struggle with depression, I recommend An Inconvenient Posting.
