Juniper Tree

Stories of Women Living Abroad

About the Book

Regardless of where we come from, everyone faces moments of change and inspiration that alter our life's journey. Juniper Tree explores these transformations by sharing stories of women who have lived abroad and the lessons they've learned along the way. Whether you have traveled abroad or not, you will be touched by their humor, resolve, and grace. 

Juniper Tree is a work in progress. As women contribute to the book their stories will appear on Juniper Tree's Leanpub site. Our goal is to celebrate women of all ages, races, ethnicities, and backgrounds; and in their own voices, share their stories of achievement, personal growth, and struggle. We hope you enjoy their stories and are inspired to pursue your own adventures as well!
