"Finding Far Away" is a fascinating memoir that reads like an incredible fiction novel. Writer Lisa Wade takes you on a one year, exciting journey in Peru. Imagine a young, single American woman working as an Environmental Engineer in the gold mining industry in a country far away from her home. This memoir has it all-the story of a brave woman and her struggles, both personally and professionally, and the changes she goes through as she experiences life in a third world country. Wade describes the corruption of Peruvian politics, the struggles of climbing the corporate ladder in a male-dominated industry, and the extreme beauty of the Peruvian landscape. Her account of an ill-fated romance with a Romania refugee adds even more spice to this extraordinary documentation of a young woman's adventure.
