Illana Benady reviews Life After My Saucepans

“Fans of What About Your Saucepans? – both book and blog – won’t be disappointed. The simple pleasures and irritations of life in the Dominican Republic and the tragedies and triumphs, both great and small, are described with the honesty and deadpan humour that Lindsay’s readers have come to
know and love.”

Illana Benady, co-author of Expat FAQs, Moving to and Living in the Dominican Republic
