I hadn´t been planning on making Mexico my new home, but the little house on the sea was all that I had left . . .
Intimate, honest and touching, this is the story of Deborah Rodriguez´s often hilarious journey of self-discovery. Forced to flee her life in Afghanistan, she leaves behind her friends, her possessions and her two beloved businesses: a hair salon and a coffee shop.
But life proves no easier ´back home´. After a year living in California where she teeters on the edge of sanity, Deborah makes a decision: she´s going to get the old Deb back. So, at the age of forty-nine, she packs her life and her cat, Polly, into her Mini Cooper and heads south to a pretty seaside town in Mexico. Home is now an unassuming little house on Carnaval Street.
If you liked Eat, Pray, Love you will love The House on Carnaval Street. Rodriguez´s story speaks to every woman, mother, sister, wife - to anyone who has ever questioned their relationships, their place in the world and the choices that they´ve made.
