After the author, Linda Liu, arrives in the United States, she is deeply attracted by the system of the American society. Linda, who has been unswerving in her endeavors, successfully realizes her American dream. At the same time, she receives a lot of help and encouragement from the ordinary American people who treat her with kindness and consideration. While living on American soil, Linda immediately meets many problems in language, family, finance, and especially in career. Her previous work experience is not helpful to find a position. However, because there are a variety of opportunities in this country, no matter how young or old you are, you can get one. Linda decides to upgrade her technical skills, but she faces the challenge of studying and finding a job. During fighting her fear for a better life, her Christian friends introduce the American tradition, culture, and lifestyle; they display God’s power and faith to her. This book is very interesting to those who are looking for a better life and who like to see how nice and generous Americans are.
