When life gives you lemons, making lemonade isn’t your only option.

So what happens when you’re back at square one at age fifty? Suddenly back in a game, although never having experienced it, with less than adequate surviving skills at best.

Meet Julia, a proud Cuban American born and raised in an old school traditional Cuban family. Divorced at fifty but ready to live, or better yet survive.

Tossed into a lion pit of self-discovery, dating, online dating, happy hours, learning the value of friendship and the many facets of trust, including self, Julia’s journey begins.

Follow her path down the rabbit hole of a new life all the way to paving the new passage toward her promising and exciting future.

Endearing, relatable, funny, and sweet are just a few words to describe Julia’s new world.
