Have you read the guest post by Phyllis Zimbler Miller, author of Mrs. Lieutenant: A Sharon Gold Novel? In the post, Phyllis describes the military as a foreign culture that she and her husband learned to adapt to, and thrive in. This left them better prepared for embracing another foreign culture (a move cross-country, where they knew no-one, leaving their support system behind).
You can read my review of Mrs. Lieutenant here, and the first four chapters of the novel at Mrs. Lieutenant’s website. Hungry for more? Enter this contest! Phyllis is offering one lucky reader a copy of her book.
Simply comment below with a few sentences of your experience with a “foreign culture” and how you coped. It could be as simple as being the new mom at a toddler playgroup, or as dramatic as a move to another continent. All these changes require adaptation skills!
Enter by midnight on June 30. One winner will be drawn randomly from all submissions and notified on July 1. Good luck!
