Book two of a two-book franchise featuring the wise, brash, hilarious Valentina Goldman, a Latina from Venezuela, now living in the USA.
After her husband's unexpected departure a year ago, poor Valentina is stuck. Help arrives in the form of an unwelcome guest: her mother, who shows up unannounced at Valentina's doorstep to take her on a 12-day Mediterranean cruise full of unexpected detours.
In tightly wound language shimmering with wit and longing, Valentina Goldman Ships Out is a moving portrait of a woman looking for answers and coping with loss, even when the waters are deep - all told in her unique style. Honest, funny, passionate and deep.
The first book is "Valentina Goldman's Immaculate Confusion."
