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 . . .

A Very Touching Read!    stars 4


What an enjoyable novel! A very touching read, and not one I’ll forget easily.

Hannah and Mona are friends and flatmates, and they both work at Stella’s Cafe, opposite Liverpool Street Station, open 24 hours and refuge to all . . .

This is a slice of life in the capital; I’ve never been to London but would like to think this a realistic portrayal of just a small part of it. This is a lovely read, written in an easy style,  which drew me in from the beginning and kept me there until the final words. There are hidden depths in this book; it’s cleverly structured and includes people from all walks of life. I feel quite privileged at being allowed to share Hannah and Mona’s days and nights and love that it was all finished off so neatly. No loose ends to worry about, exactly how I like it. I’m very happy to give this four stars.

My thanks to publisher Orion for my copy via NetGalley; this is, as always, my honest, original and unbiased review.
