Moira Hodgson combines several of my favorite topics in this book. She tells great stories about her family, her travels and food. Hodgson is the daughter of a British Foreign Service officer who was fortunate enough to live in Egypt, Vietnam and Germany among other places.

As a free spirit she made her own fortune - finding ways to support herself and continue to travel.

There were parts of this book that reminded me of Penelope Lively because of their interesting childhood and other parts (the food) that reminded me of Ruth Reihl.

All in all a wonderful read.
