[Note: This book was provided free of charge by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.]

The updated version of an immensely popular guide to encourage those dealing with the occasional trauma of moving, this book offers something familiar to the reader as well, a book written by a woman for women about women [1]. Although there is nothing in the title of the book itself that would suggest that this book is narrowly focused on women, the contents of that book make it plain. As

Having moved a lot in my life, I thought it would be good to read a book about it. This book had some good tips and practical advice for those who move. Steps like letting go of the past, ways to start over in a new place, and moving ahead in your new life. Overall I would recommend this book as a good resource for those who are moving. It was a bit cliche but did have some practical tips. I gave it a 3.5/5 rating.

As a military wife, I have experienced the gamut of emotions and situations, Miller so beautifully articulates. This is will a book I refer to often as we continue moving all over the country every few years.

I'm reading this book as a part of a small group. The book itself is okay but I love the premise of helping women adjust to a move. My group is awesome and the book provides good fodder for discussion but I don't think the book would have the same punch without a discussion group. So I would give it 3 or 4 stars with a group but only 2 on its own.

Wish I would have read this the summer we moved! It was very encouraging, as far as practical advice was concerned. Our church does this as a bible study but doesn't offer child care for my kids ages. I decided to read it for myself, and I'm glad I did. The content was a little fluffy for my taste at times, but overall I enjoyed it.

More like 3 stars for actual content, but the 4th is for the research/scripture that Susan Miller packs into this book.

While this book is intended for women (as my wife is currently reading it), it's just as helpful for men to read it, as we are idiots who need everyday reminders that women and men think differently.

I've moved 18 times since 2003 and I wish I would've found this book years ago. Every time I've moved, I've felt the weight of the adjustments that need to be made. I highly recommend this book to Christian women who feel disconnected after moving and are seeking peace in the new environment.

So helpful in the moving process and learning from others and hearing Godly women share the ups and downs. Definitely perfect timing and helped me to realize how and why I need to put down roots and make this home.

Excellent!!!!!! I read along with doing a group study that lasted from Sept. to April along with outings and small group discussions. It was an amazing tool to adjusting to a move half way around the globe!

This book has been so helpful to me this last month! It is an easy read, but Susan Miller has some wisdom to share to women who are moving
