ABOUT THIS BOOK
Welcome to the café that never sleeps.
Day and night, Stella's Café opens its doors to the lonely and the lost, the morning people and the night owls. It's a place where everyone is always welcome, where life can wait at the door.
Meet Hannah and Mona: best friends, waitresses, dreamers. They love working at Stella's - the different people they meet, the small kindnesses exchanged. But is it time to step outside and make their own way in life?
Come inside and spend twenty-four hours at Stella's Café, where one day might just be enough to change your life . . .
Absorbing, moving, and relatable on so many levels, THE 24-HOUR CAFÉ by Libby Page is a fantastic book to read this January.
The setting is a 24-hour café called Stella's in London and the characters are those that work there and those that frequent it at all hours of the day. Hannah and Mona are best friends, one a musician and the other a dancer, who works in the café to pay the bills while they reach for their big break. Only their big break doesn't seem to be happening very quickly and as the years pass and they enter their 30s they cannot help but question if they will ever make it. But they will always have each other, right?
The café isn't just a place to grab food at any time of the day or night, for some it is a refuge - like the homeless student who is grieving his mother or the new mum who is struggling to cope with how she feels about her life or even one of the cooks who struggled to get work after prison and to which Stella's was his saviour. From young love to new love, from sadness to despair, this café sees it all and as Hannah and Mona struggle with some new issues in their friendship, could it be the place to bring them back into sync?
THE 24-HOUR CAFÉ by Libby Page is a story about life - all different walks of life, all the wonderful and sad moments of life - with the beauty of friendship at its heart. Hannah and Mona are soulmates in that they truly understand and love each other for who they are but sometimes people lose sight of friendships when they need it most and moving onto different paths can be difficult, but this author has a talent for setting the tone and mood just right at every point.
I laughed, I sniffled, and I enjoyed every moment of this novel and I cannot wait to read more from Libby Page. THE 24-HOUR CAFÉ is a must-read this January and beyond, and I highly recommend it to all fiction fans.
