What does it mean to belong somewhere? How does a young woman from Belgium end up feeling more at home in a country like Pakistan, a place so different then the one she comes from? In this personal book Wendy Marijnissen tries to answer some of these questions. Always the Guest is a story about loss, motherhood, about home, who crosses your path and helps to shape your identity.
