Mary Edwards Wertsch, author of Military Brats: Legacies of Childhood Inside the Fortress

“Nancy Henderson-James has written a tremendous book.  Her writing skillfully weaves the threads of a beautiful exotic setting, the discoveries and tensions of adolescence, the powerful shaping attachment to a very particular place, and the unfillable void of absence.  I highly recommend her memoir to anyone exploring the mysterious terrain of childhood, the challenge of straddling vastly different worlds, or the way loss adds depth as well as pain to a thoughtful life.”
