Summary
In 1989, as their mid-life crises approached, concert pianist Binka Le Breton and her husband Robin, an agricultural economist, decided to uproot themselves from their home in Washington, D.C. and start a new life in Brazil. They embarked on an adventure that many readers only dream about--transplanting themselves in a different country and learning (often the hard way) what it takes to survive and flourish
