A Way from Home
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungIt is 1992, and the Lowe family is living in a centuries-old castle in Prague. Alden Lowe works at the Czech Ministry of Finance and his wife Becky advises women entrepreneurs. With their daugher Julie, they appear a fortunate American family, but after twenty years with Alden, Becky shocks the family by fleeing to Libya, where she intends to reunite with a man who has loved her since before her marriage.
In its tale of Americans living abroad and the social reconfigurations that ensue, the captivating "A Way" "from Home" is reminiscent of the novels of Edith Wharton and Henry James--with a delicious satiric tang all its own.
