    Re-entry can be a lonely business, as it is very rare to experience it in community. Well, this collection of stories provides a little bit of that community. We get to journey alongside the authors as they experience re-entry. I’m sure anyone who has re-entry as part of their story will have many “Yes! That is so true!” or “Oh so others have felt that way too?” moments. What a gift those are!

    While Cate Brubaker's reentry programs have already helped me in my own repatriation journey, these different voices, compiled into a book, made me see once again that I am not alone in this critical phase.

    This book brought back many of the feelings I had having moved all around the United States. You don't have to go abroad for these kind of experiences. This book helped explain and explore my family's experience. It's nice to know we are normal. Melt down at the grocery store. I remember being in the produce section of Winn Dixie in Charlotte, NC when a wave of homesickness struck this Rocky Mountain Girl. I began crying trying to decide which Idaho spuds to buy. My college roommates had been from Idaho and there was a new shipment of russets from Shelley and Paul, Idaho. This is a must read for any family that has or will be moving a lot.

    After living in the Middle East for 12 years, it was interesting to read about the experiences and perceptions of others. Our community in Dhahran was very similar to an American community in many ways. The business and medical language was English. We didn’t really integrate into the local community as most of these people did. But we all traveled extensively in our free time and had vastly different experiences than most of our family and friends back home. I have seen many of the same reactions from many people when we’ve tried to share our foreign living experiences.

    The writers do a great job of sharing how much change occurs when living overseas, and how that impacts their perspective upon returning home. Travel truly has a personal growth element. You'll find the guidance in this book applies even when traveling for just a short time. These stories will inspire you to book more trips outside of your home country. Great read!
