About the Book
Part memoir, part introduction to life in Switzerland, From Montgomery to the Matterhorn provides a special perspective on an American childhood and an adulthood spent adjusting to a new life in Europe. Using her personal experiences as a springboard, the author explores many social, political and historical aspects of life in both her ‘homelands’; in doing so, she also offers an insight into the challenges inherent in moving to any new culture and how meeting these can not only widen one’s horizons but also sharpen one’s perceptions of which forms of government and which social/economic models provide the optimal basis for the well-being of its citizens.
