At Home on the Kazakh Steppe

Just when her life felt right: new home, new career, new grandchildren, Janet Givens leaves it all behind and, with her new husband, joins the Peace Corps. Assigned to Kazakhstan, a Central Asian country finding its own way after generations under Soviet rule, she too must find a way to be in a world different from what she knew and expected.

Will it be worth it?
