The House on Carnaval Street

The House on Carnaval Street

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.
