Deena's eyes rounded. "You have nothing to do with this tour? You're the tour director's wife."
"And so, you can't possibly have nothing to do with the tour. I mean, it's a pretty encompassing job, not your typical nine-to-five."
Pessie snapped her seat belt shut and gazed ahead coolly. "That's true. But work is work. It's not so fun. You do what you have to do, right?"
"Rrrright. But like, this job is different. It must be a pretty exciting, never-a-dull-moment kind of life."
"That's also true."
"There's this massive but hovering on your lips."
Boy, food bloggers were a blunt species.
"No buts," Pessie said tersely.
"Whatever you say. Sorry if I said anything wrong. I was just trying to picture what it’s like to be in your place."
Pessie didn't know what got into her. The words left her mouth before she could think twice. "Honestly?" she said. "It's a very lonely place to be."
When Pessie Hersko's husband Yochi decides to give up his steady, predictable job as an accountant to work as a tour director, taking frumtravelers to five-star hotels around the world, Pessie's every instinct screams to squelch Yochi's enthusiasm, and the whole crazy idea in general. Why can't Yochi see the ridiculousness of pursuing such a job, not to mention the unfairness of it to his wife and family?
Deena Lizman is a young widow and single mother, whose job as a food blogger and influencer is jeopardizing her relationship with her daughter...as well as preventing her from properly feeling and processing her own jumbled emotions.
Can Pessie summon the inner strength necessary to follow Yochi wholeheartedly down the off-the-beaten path he has chosen for himself and their family? And can Deena face the world, including her own self, as the true, unglamorized Deena, without her flawless #nutsandbasil persona?
