Overview

The first love story from Detroit and the very first expatriate novel:

The "Detroit, Michigan - Love Letters from an Alien" is a story about an ordinary german expatriate family. The adventure started, when they leave their northern german suburb to move to Detroit and live there for one year. But Detroit isn´t just like any other american city: it is the time of the automotiv industry crisis and the collapse of the city.
Twelf monthly letters describe the fear and anxious of the german family, and the jumble of feelings that go along with leaving their home and arriving in a new country, of connecting with neighbor, adjusting to a strange environment.
It is the story of any expatriate in the world: to feel like an alien and to be a legal alien. And it is the story of the love of a lifetime.

I like the letters I read so far. Being a "spouse mouse" (that's how the author calls herself) in Michigan myself I had same experiences. First I thought it would be a good handout for new expats but maybe it's more interesting to first explore everything and than read it and nod one's head. And everyone who is already back home (where is home?) is going to smile while reading it.

I lived with my family as an german expatriate in Metro Detroit from 2008 to 2012.
During this time I wrote monthly newsletter to our family and friends back home - this were the original Love Letters.
