I signed up for a great blog, Authors Promoting Authors. Tina-Sue does a fantastic job running this very informative and interesting blog. The idea is for Authors to share their works with other authors and their audiences on their respective blogs. So with that in mind, I want to share with you A Broad Abroad in Thailand by Dodie Cross.
A Broad Abroad in Thailand follows a newlywed expat as she tries to settle into her new home and a life full of unforeseen challenges. Soon after her arrival in this exotic land, her problems begin: as she tries to learn the subtleties of the eastern squat toilet; then the fatal auto accident on the deadly highway that should have taken her life; to the final insult—bladder surgery by an inscrutable Thai doctor who decides to restore her virginity, while an intolerant nurse is after her with a vengeance─and an enema tube.
She leaves the hospital A.M.A. (Against Medical Advise) and then must be medivac’d back to the States with her catheter tube swaying in the breeze.
As if that’s not enough to slow down even the most determined of women, she must also deal with her new husband’s insatiable testosterone level─a textbook case of sexual fixation. Interwoven throughout her day-to-day life is the undercurrent of absolute control and jealousy perpetrated by a most unlikely source: the boss's wife, Ms. Anorexia, who manipulates the wives of the employees with her need to control every aspect of their lives: from shopping, to entertainment, to friends.
An unflagging sense of humor helps her through most obstacles, in a land whose people she has come to respect and admire, through times of seemingly insurmountable challenges.
