Debut author Suzy Krause delivers a quirky, colourful story about love, loss, second chances and what it means to truly live.

There’s a difference between being alive and living. This is a story about living. Valencia, a timid debt collector with crippling OCD, is afraid of many things, but the two that scare her most are flying and turning 35. To confront those fears, Valencia’s therapist suggests that she fly somewhere – anywhere – before her upcoming birthday. And as Valencia begins a telephone romance with a man from New York, she suddenly has a destination in mind. There’s only one problem – he might not actually exist. Mrs Valentine is an eccentric old woman desperate for company, be it from neighbours, telemarketers, or even the funeral director (when you’re her age, you go to a lot of funerals). So she’s thrilled when the new cleaning girl provides a listening ear for her life’s story – 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 common … but then again, nothing in life is as straightforward as it seems.

'Valencia and Valentine is an exquisitely detailed, intricately woven tale that speaks to the truth at the heart of every good story: love.'
Eliza Gordon
