Review:

«The book contributes to the field of migration studies in three important ways: firstly, it improves our understanding of Southern European migration to England (an area neglected due to the emphasis on the race/colour of migrants); secondly, it illuminates the area of service jobs (an area often neglected due to its association with women's work); and thirdly, it showcases the value of personal narratives to understand migration (a qualitative approach usually neglected due to the emphasis on statistics). [...] this book improves our understanding of migration, provides an excellent illustration of the dynamic interplay of social structure and individual agency, and raises an interesting issue for future research: the place of emotions in the production of national identity and its relation with language.» (Benito Cao, Social Identities)
«[Esta investigacion] se muestra como una de las vías con mas futuro de la antropologia sociocultural. [...] [La autora utiliza] unas categorías analiticas y descriptivas que (...) tienen una carga de audacia teorica en el contexto de explicación y descripción del discurso. [...] En el analisis de las narrativas hay gestos tecnicos hermeneuticos dignos de atención (...). La autora se esmera en (re)construr contextos historicós (...) [que consiguen] una vision transgeneracional y transhistorica de valores culturales que permite contrastar y comparar las experiencias de estas mujeres sin perder la sensibilidad humana y capacidad de abstracción teorica.» (Guillermo Alonso Meneses, Migraciones Internationales)
