For readers of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely
Fine, debut author Suzy Krause delivers a quirky,
colorful story about love, loss, second chances, and what it
means to truly live.
Valencia, a timid debt collector with crippling OCD, is
afraid of many things, but the two that scare her most are
flying and turning thirty-five. To confront those fears,
Valenciaâ€™s therapist suggests that she fly
somewhereâ€”anywhereâ€”before her upcoming birthday. And
as Valencia begins a telephone romance with a man from New
York, she suddenly has a destination in mind. Thereâ€™s only
one problemâ€”he might not actually exist.
Mrs. Valentine is an eccentric old woman desperate for
company, be it from neighbors, telemarketers, or even the
funeral director (when youâ€™re her age, you go to a lot of
funerals). So sheâ€™s thrilled when the new cleaning girl
provides a listening ear for her lifeâ€™s storyâ€”a tale of
storybook love and incredible adventures around the world
with her husband before his mysterious and sudden disappearance.
The stories of Valencia and Mrs. Valentine may at first
appear to have nothing in commonâ€¦but then again, nothing in
life is as straightforward as it seems.
