Summary Excerpt Comments

Kristie Leigh Maguire defies today's world of political correctness in Emails from the Edge, her memoirs as an expatriate wife during the turbulent decade of the 90s. Her lifeline with the "real world" was emails with her friend back in the States. By sharing excerpts of these emails with the world, KLM presents a raw and brutally honest look at her experiences in a land where she could not speak the language and in a culture very unfamiliar to her in all aspects. In a way it is like being a voyeur, pulling back the curtain of friendship, and finding out they are not just talking about milk and cookies. People may not gush over this book but it will make them stop and think...or it should.

Take a deep look within as you read Emails from the Edge in the comfort of surroundings that are familiar to you. Could you have handled the situation any better if you had been in KLM's shoes? Maybe. Maybe not.

USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Forster had this to say, "A bold, honest look at how two cultures collide and lessons learned. Some may think KLM politically incorrect; I say she is courageous to share her honest feelings and inner thoughts. It is really gutsy and fascinating."
