A Way from Home

(2005)
A novel by

 
 
It is 1992, and the Lowe family is living in a centuries-old castle in Prague. Alden Lowe works at the Czech Ministry of Finance and his wife Becky advises women entrepreneurs. With their daugher Julie, they appear a fortunate American family, but after twenty years with Alden, Becky shocks the family by fleeing to Libya, where she intends to reunite with a man who has loved her since before her marriage.

In its tale of Americans living abroad and the social reconfigurations that ensue, the captivating A Wayfrom Home is reminiscent of the novels of Edith Wharton and Henry James--with a delicious satiric tang all its own.
