Claire  Hoffmann - The Sizzling of the Stars


An unusual friendship across generations, a spontaneous cruise and a journey to oneself

Stella, out of work and newly ditched, is in a bad way when she meets seventy-year-old Balthasar. The one-time professor of literature invites her to go on a cruise with him, but under one condition: Stella must on no account ask any questions about his past. She spontaneously agrees and they set off as in a dream come true.

Stella enjoys life on board, the vastness of the oceans, the starry nights, has one adventure after the other and slowly feels more like herself. Then she becomes increasingly aware that Balthasar has something to hide. And Stella herself is also confronted with an uncomfortable truth about her life.
