In many ways, I was an independent woman, writes Pulitzer Prize?winning journalist Alice Steinbach. For years I'd made my own choices, paid my own bills, shoveled my own snow. But somehow she had become dependent in quite another way. I had fallen into the habit . . . of defining myself in terms of who I was to other people and what they expected of me. But who was she away from the people and things that defined her? In this exquisite book, Steinbach searches for the answer to this question in some of the most beautiful and exciting places in the world: Paris, where she finds a soul mate; Oxford, where she takes a course on the English village; Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to be married. Beautifully illustrated with postcards from her journeys, this revealing and witty book transports you into a fascinating inner and outer journey, an unforgettable voyage of discovery.

I really enjoyed this book. The author did a great job of reflecting on her experiences as she traveled, as well as delving into her own inner thoughts.
