Publisher's Summary

Welcome to The Kookaburra Creek Cafe.  

The past: For Hattie, the cafe has been her refuge for the last 50 years - her second chance at a happy ending after her dreams of being a star were shattered. But will the ghosts of her past succeed in destroying everything she’s worked so hard to build?   

The present: For Alice, the cafe is her livelihood. After Hattie took her in as a teenager, Alice has slowly forged a quiet life as the cafe’s manager (and chief cupcake baker). But with so many tragedies behind her, is it too late for Alice’s story to have a happy ending?

The future: For Becca, a teenager in trouble, the cafe could be the new start she yearns for. That is if she can be persuaded to stop running from her secrets. Can Becca find a way to believe in the kindness of strangers and accept that this small town could be the place where she finally belongs?  

One small town. Three lost women. And a lifetime of secrets.

couldn't stop listening

This is the second book from Sandie Docker I've listened to and both I couldn't stop listening to. The story is beautiful and being Australian really allows you to connect with the characters ... there's also something magical in having the story read to you.. the way Docker writes you really feel like you're in the story.

Enjoyable story but the narration is dull.

I thought the story and the characters were quite good and I did enjoy it however I thought the narration was a bit dull. If the story hadn't been as interesting as it was I probably would not of finished it.

loved it

Street story about strong flawed women and the people who love them and care for them. A small country town that makes me want to find that life. Looking forward to the next book.
