Summary
"In this memoir of travel and love, a fiercely independent American woman finds everything she ever wanted in the most unexpected place. Shufu. In Japanese it means "housewife," and it's the last thing Tracy Slater ever thought she'd call herself. A writer and academic, Tracy had carefully constructed a life she loved in her beloved hometown of Boston. But everything was upended when she fell head over heels for the most unlikely mate: a Japanese salaryman based in Osaka who barely spoke her language. Deciding to give fate a chance, Tracy built a life in Japan filled with contradictions and dissonance, but also strange moments of enlightenment and joy"--
Summary
Tracy Slater, deciding to follow her destiny, builds a life in Japan where she, despite many challenges, fills her life with meaningful connections, a loving marriage and wonder at her adopted country, a place that will never feel natural or easy, but provides endless opportunities
