This week, we discussed the second part of Behind the Beautiful Forevers in our Thursday book club. Why Dreams Turn to Ash talks about how what we want can collide with what others expect of us. How can these two be aligned? How are we to live at peace? Can we pursue our dreams? Come join the discussion.


Did you enjoy this week's recommendations? You're invited to check back each weekend to see more of the good stuff out there brought here. I do my best to keep it relevant to women in cross-cultural situations too.
