50 Answers to your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad

‘Expat Women: Confessions’ is a useful Question & Answer book based on the advice column of www.expatwomen.com.  The authors, Andrea Martins co-founder of the website and Victoria Hepworth volunteer in this organisation, have gathered questions and answers of six main topics of expatriation: settling in, career and money, raising children, relationships, mixed emotions and repatriation. This book shares the good and the ‘ugly’ of being or becoming an expat woman.

The book brings to light many questions, issues and frustations that arise when living abroad. It deals also with hot and sensitive topics (domestic violence, infidelity…). No judgement is made, whatever the question is. The answers are written with empathy, give encouragement and wise suggestions are proposed.

It is written with honesty and is accessible for anyone.
