Inconvenient PostingIn the wake of hurricane Sandy, Laura J Stephens, author of An Inconvenient Posting: An Expat Wife’s Memoir of Lost Identity, is reminded of another hurricane four years ago… Hurricane Ike struck Houston, USA in September 2008, when British-born Laura (and her family) were living in the city.
