About the Book

Five Books for the Travelling Expat Partner

As recommended by Expatibility

“Very often an overseas move is driven by an irresistible employment prospect – for one half of a couple, one parent in a family. It’s a fantastic opportunity and everyone gets on board but in the heat of the excitement and the whirlwind of planning, it can be easy to overlook the needs of the accompanying partner. Often the unflatteringly labelled ‘trailing spouse’ has to give up their own career to make this move and, while this would be a joint decision of the couple, can be an unexpectedly distressing experience.”
