Author: Joan BrownPosted: January 18, 2015
Brown’s astonishingly mobile life–21 moves in 32 years–shows others forced to relocate that they’re not alone in their feelings of desperation and helps them discover ways to move on. Whether for military, corporate or personal reasons, packing up one’s whole life in boxes may not be easy but Move helps the reader see comedy in chaos and meaning in mobility.
Most Americans move eleven times over a lifetime. And the basic demands on time and energy that stem from earning a living, family obligations and the basics of eating and sleeping continue unabated. Brown addresses the additional complexities of virtual single parenthood, variations in educational systems, dealing with separation from one’s spouse and reunion, adjustment to new cultures, emptying the nest and retirement.
Move also opens a window on a world totally unfamiliar to many, the life of the military family. For all who relocate, whether military or civilian, Move is a parable of hope.
