Review: With Love From Bratislava by Christy Morgan

July 13, 2019

This was an enjoyable memoir about the author’s decision to release herself from the tedium of a marriage gone stale and set out on an adventure to discover herself in a new country and culture. Slovakia might seem an odd choice for a Canadian, but the author’s background and former relationships pave the way for her decision to move to Bratislava with her two young children. Luckily, she has the wholehearted support of her ex-husband and a number of new and kind acquaintances in her adoptive city.

Dealing with the bureaucracy involved with residency would have had me tearing my hair out, but Christy Morgan stays the course and learns to love her new home. This is a very personal account, and apart from those within the author’s immediate circle, we don’t learn much about the Slovakian people until close to the end of the book. Most of the story focuses on the challenges with the immigration processes and her personal relationships, Bratislava and its cafés being the backdrop. All the same, it made me google the places she wrote about and I found myself intrigued by the city too.

This was a pleasant and entertaining read and I hope there will be a sequel.
