Summary

Lois Nicholls discovers the grass is not always greener on the other side when she emigrates to Australia with her young family. While she speaks the same language she often experiences a cultural divide and lack of understanding by locals. The scorching heat is unbearable and a homesick fog also threatens to derail her notion of a romantic adventure in a foreign land. This is a humorous, frank account of what it's really like to leave all that is familiar and loved to start a new life down under.

An absolute classic!

This book really resonated with me as a "legal alien" moving to a foreign land. I could totally get into the shoes of the writer and relate to all the fun and sometimes difficult situations when immigrating to a foreign land. I loved the quick wit and humor strewn through all the everyday stories. This book is a must for anyone wanting to emigrate to Australia (or any other foreign country). Very helpful and enjoyable… thanks!
