Dispatches from the Cowgirl: Through the Looking Glass with a Navy Diplomat’s Wife
by Julie Tully
Leaving her career and everything she knew behind to follow her husband, Julie Tully was rapidly approaching forty and wondering, “What is my place in the world?” Enter Africa, the continent she had dreamed of since childhood, a chance to reinvigorate her life. A supposed two-year assignment for her family in Sub-Saharan Africa soon turns into an eight-year adventure in Cameroon, Nigeria, and Djibouti and sees Julie become an unofficial diplomat as wife to a military attaché. In a world where diplomacy is key, Julie becomes the person she was meant to be.
Part travelogue, part midlife coming-of-age memoir, Dispatches From the Cowgirl unveils the little-known world of an American military spouse serving amongst the world's diplomatic corps, taking readers to the Africa Julie fell in love with and found hard to leave.W. Brand Publishing
