The author, the child of missionaries to Korea, explores the acculturation of the missionaries in their adopted land and the issues facing them and their children on return to the USA. While her stories are specific to Korea, the difficulties and rewards of living in another culture and of switching between cultures are familiar to many who have lived for an extended period in another country. Anyone who has experienced the challenges of orientation in a strange place to what were the most routine activities or encounters has tasted acculturation.
