An Indian-born foreign service officer killed in the U.S. embassy bombing in Nairobi, Kenya. An Austrian-born doctor who volunteered her medical skills in Japan, South Vietnam, and Iran. A French-speaking woman from a remote village in Gabon. These are just three of the women whose stories are told in this book-women born in other countries who, through their marriages to American diplomats, became representatives of the United States. While they experience immigrant life in a unique way, they share the challenges faced by other women in cross-cultural marriages away from their own countries.
