Review by Me, Emily
Susan and Tim Pohlman plan to divorce after their business trip to Italy. While in Italy, however, they decide to give their family one last chance. Bringing their two teenaged children, they pack up their lives and move to Italy for a year.
Sounds romantic, huh?
They put everything on the line. Life isn't always easy halfway around the world. They don't even speak the language.
But the difficulties (and the beauties) of living in Italy bring their family closer together.
Susan Pohlman writes with such honesty. Her stories are full of humor and heart. I'm not much for memoirs myself, but this one was one of the most enjoyable I've ever read. A talented writer, a unique yet relatable plot, and lots of laughs.
I definitely recommend Halfway to Each Other.
PS. It would make a great book club book.
