Publisher's Summary

Dead mothers, missing husbands, disgusting dates, perverted "reverends" seductive gurus, infamous ingrates, and cheese thieves. These are just a few of the cast of characters that pepper Valerie Gilbert's true tales in Raving Violet.
Enter the world of a solitary but intrepid New Yorker. Orphaned as a young adult, this divorced, smartass metaphysician has sought solace and insight from philosophers, seances, channels and mediums: a path that has, inevitably, led her back to her formidable fortress within.
Join Valerie as she scales the castle walls on her journey for love, sex, sass, a chuckle, and really good chocolate. Love and Loss! Love and Glory! Love and Nausea! Raving Violet has it all.

Raving Violet

If you could sum up Raving Violet in three words, what would they be?

It is a well written essays, with many areas of the author's life, her spiritual and metaphysical leanings. Her great personality quite literally jumps straight off the page at you I kept listening till the end
