The 24-Hour Cafe

by Libby Page

The 24-Hour Cafe Synopsis

Welcome to the cafe that never sleeps. Day and night Stella's Cafe opens its doors for the lonely and the lost, the morning people and the night owls. It is many things to many people but most of all it is a place where life can wait at the door. A place of small kindnesses. A place where anyone can be whoever they want, where everyone is always welcome. Meet Hannah and Mona: best friends, waitresses, dreamers. They work at Stella's but they dream of more, of leaving the cafe behind and making their own way in life. Come inside and spend twenty-four hours at Stella's Cafe; a day when Hannah and Mona's futures will be changed and their friendship tested. Today is just the start, but it is also marks a conclusion. Because all beginnings are also endings. And all endings can also be beginnings...
