Here is Sharpe's account of her experiences in a strange little country in Europe, her private thoughts and comments, and her sharp and witty observations of the Dutch way of life. Before the move, she and her American family actually planned to move to Paris, but her husband Peter was offered a position in the Netherlands. They find typical expatriate problems in their path, learn to tackle them and in the meantime discover this new country. 'No problem. A quick trip to The Netherlands and hours later Peter signed papers for our new home (sight unseen by me). So, we weren't moving to Paris. So we didn't speak Dutch. So our children faced the prospect of being home-schooled by their mother - a fate worse than death! So we left one angry French landlady and two grateful school children on a long waiting list in St. Cloud. So my brother cancelled his tickets for next spring and told us that moving from Paris to The Hague was like moving from Boston to Cincinnati!'
