The Travels of an Independent Woman

'In many ways, I was an independent woman,' writes Alice Steinbach, a single working mother, in this captivating book. 'For years I'd made my own choices, paid my own bills, shoveled my own snow, and had relationships that allowed for a lot of freedom on both sides.' Slowly, however, she saw that she had become quite dependent in 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.'

Who am I, she wanted to know, away from the things that define me - my family, children, job, friends? Steinbach searches for the answer to this provocative questions in some of the most exciting places in the world: Paris, where she finds a soulmate in a Japanese man; Oxford, when she takes a course on the English village; Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to be married.

Beautifully illustrated with postcards Steinbach wrote home to herself to preserve her spontaneous impressions, this revealing and witty book will transport readers instantly into a fascinating inner and outer journey, an unforgettable voyage of discovery.
