"In these pages, Susan Solomont has shared an exhilarating story of the challenges and the special joys of representing America abroad, which will inspire, educate and delight."
--Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House--Nancy Pelosi
"Susan's book is so much more than a memoir of the Solomonts' years in Spain -- it is about self-discovery, adventure, reinvention ... all through the eyes of an amazing, tireless woman."
--Chef José Andrés, ​Founder of World Central Kitchen--Chef José Andrés
"One-part Madam Secretary, one part Eat, Pray, Love -- Lost and Found in Spain is a candid, personal, and often humorous account of full immersion in a magical, historic culture, and a crash course in public diplomacy, told from the perspective of a woman whose journey is marked by grace and goodwill."
--John Kerry, 68th US Secretary of State--John Kerry
"Useful reading for those in a similar position, whether in the public or private sector, and a strong case for better defining the roles of diplomatic spouses, to say nothing of paying them for their work."
--Kirkus Reviews-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"A vivid, honest, and loving account of life behind the scenes in one of the most coveted and dazzling institutions that represents the United States. That Susan and Alan Solomont quickly got labeled 'Team Solomont' among the diplomatic circles in town is a testimony to Susan's brilliance, easy charm, and delightful wit, which find ample expression in her book."
--H.E. Ana de Palacio, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Spain--H.E. Ana de Palacio
"In Lost and Found in Spain, Susan Lewis Solomont provides the rare gift of revealing the world of diplomacy. She takes us behind the walls of the US Embassy in Spain and we get a portrayal of life through the lens of an entrepreneurial woman. She offers an in-depth tour into the world of protocol and the role that spouses make for themselves in this mysterious yet intriguing world. And did I mention the food? That alone is worth the ride--but there's far more in this fascinating book."
