A Magnificent Exchangeis an extraordinary story of one American family's remarkable adventure inThe Land of the Rising Sun. It's a colorful account of how a mother and her six year old son transitioned, adapted and eventually triumphed in a foreign country. This mother didn't wait for her ship to come in; she swam out to meet it! So when the opportunity presented itself for her to take her young son and travel to Japan to teach English as a Foreign Language, she let go, said goodbye to all that was comfortable; to all that was familiar, and followed her dream. A Magnificent Exchangeis a testimony to the human spirit and an unforgettable story of an American family's successful assimilation into Japanese society. It's a story of promise and one of hope. It proves that harmony can come from chaos, and courage can come from fear.Allen-Adams, Stephanie is the author of 'Magnificent Exchange (Subara Shii Kokusai Koryu)', published 2006 under ISBN 9780595376988 and ISBN 0595376983.
