The Expat Partner’s Survival Guide – a month old and five star reviews!

So I have been a bit neglectful in holding a birthday party for the Survival Guide but last week it turned one month old! This reminds me of the days of having a baby and celebrating each little milestone – birth, one week old, one month…next it’ll be crawling, first steps and learning to talk!

happy birthday book

Anyway apart from that, I have been getting some lovely reviews on Amazon, which have included the following:

Don’t move abroad without packing this book…..Honestly, it’s the best leaving gift you could possibly buy for any man or woman ‘trailing’ after a partner who has a job abroad.

and

Essential reading for all current or future expat partners… Easy to read, detailed chapters on every aspect:preparing your move, settling in, schooling, returning home, etc. Would recommend this book 100%.

and

The book is guaranteed to help even the most chaotic person get organised, and will definitely guide anyone who is feeling overwhelmed.

You can read more of my reviews at Amazon.co.uk and at Amazon.com.

In the meantime, I have also had a lovely review from blogger Rachel Pieh Jones, whose blog Djibouti Jones is a fascinating insight into Rachel’s life in a largely-unknown area of the world. As well as her blog, Rachel is a regular contributor to well-regarded publications like Brain, Child and provides some really insightful articles about life as an expat and mother to TCK’s. In her review she says:

Clara’s voice is down-to-earth throughout and the anecdotes she uses to illustrate her points fit perfectly. This is a book I wish I had when we first moved overseas (especially because I’m the kind of dork who loves checklists!)

You can read the full review here, and while you are there have a nose through her excellent blog.
