In the space of a few days, Carrie

Classon loses her marriage, her career, and her home—all while working in Lagos, Nigeria. With only her deaf cat, Lucy, for company, she decides to remain in Africa until she figures out what has just happened.


Making unlikely new friends, tumbling into an improbable love affair, and sailing a dhow to Mombasa, Carrie finally lets go of who she thought she was, so she can start from scratch in middle age.

“Classon's story will snare you from page one and keep you engaged to see what happens next in this true story! Simply amazing!"

—Gove County Advocate
