Idgie Says:
I will say that while this is a stand alone novel, I believe that you would have a much better feel for the story if you had read her other book first, which details how she got to where she currently is in life.

What I enjoy most about books like this is that they give you glimpses into other cultures and lives and tend to do so in a realistic manner - no drama, overstretching of the realities, no "glamour" added.  It's a description of a person actually living and working in other lands that we may never get to see ourselves.

Deborah describes her life well - including all of her anxiety and quirkiness. 

Book Description:
Irreverent, insightful, and blatantly honest, Deborah takes us along on her inspiring journey of self-discovery and renewal after she is forced to flee Afghanistan in 2007. She first lands in California, where she feels like a misfit teetering on the brink of sanity. Where was that fearless redhead who stared danger in the face back in Kabul?

After being advised to commune with glow worms and sit in contemplation for one year, Rodriguez finally packs her life and her cat into her Mini Cooper and moves to a seaside town in Mexico. Despite having no plan, no friends, and no Spanish, a determined Rodriguez soon finds herself swept up in a world where the music never stops and a new life can begin. Her adventures and misadventures among the expats and locals help lead the way to new love, new family, and a new sense of herself.

In the magic of Mexico, she finds the hairdresser within, and builds the life she never knew was possible -  life on her own terms.
