I don’t believe there are any expat women who would not recognise a part of themselves in this book. Having been an expat child, wife and mother, I found myself taken back to old memories. Sunshine Soup takes you on a journey of emotions. You are taken through the fear, the unknown, the loneliness, the frustrations, the joy, the temptations and the difficulties of being an expat wife. The book shows the complexity that a relationship can experience when one partner feel disempowered. The book also shows how beautiful friendships can be formed while living overseas. For established expats this book is like a good friend who has come to say hello. For future expats this is book to learn from. By the time I had finished reading Sunshine Soup I felt as though I knew Maya and had shared her experiences, I am sure you will to.
