Item description for Living with the Dutch by Norean Sharpe...
A entertaining account of a two-years in the Netherlands that doubles as an insightful guide to moving country
"It is not 'a piece of cake' to move to another country, but -- though undoubtedly culture shock struck many a time -- Norean approached her new home with openness and enthusiasm and put the same dedication she had previously put into her career...into making herself at home in the Netherlands. Her adventures are an entertaining and enlightening read. So, if you are wondering where to start, we suggest you pick up this little book and find out that with a real-life husband, family and household, life in a new country might be a challenge, but also an adventure -- that will leave you changed forever, but also more complete."---The Xpat Journal (Netherlands)
An overachiever, Norean was a woman trying to sustain the modern woman's American dream -- to have a career, be a wife and mother, and somehow remain sane. Then, unexpectedly, her husband was offered an overseas assignment....
Living with the Dutch is part memoir, part guide to the culture and people of The Netherlands, part advice to anyone contemplating moving country with a family. This book is a charming account of Norean's travels and experiences during her two-year stay in The Hague, and chronicles her personal growth as she gains a new perspective on life. The reader follows her family from the chaotic move overseas, to surviving Dutch neighbors, weather, traffic, cooking and much more!
