When Martin Grace enters the hip Philadelphia coffee shop Cornelia Brown manages, her life changes forever. But little does she know that her newfound love is only the harbinger of greater changes to come. Meanwhile, across town, Clare Hobbs-eleven years old and abandoned by her erratic mother-goes looking for her lost father. She crosses paths with Cornelia while meeting with him at the cafE, and the two women form an improbable friendship that carries them through the unpredictable currents of love and life.

"When a book and performance try this hard to be loved, there's only one thing you can do: refuse. Both book and narrator (at least, in the case of Alma Cuervo) aim to be found so sweet as to be irresistible. The story concerns Cornelia Brown, the charming, underemployed 31-year old manager of a Philadelphia coffeehouse, who believes romance should imitate THE PHILADELPHIA STORY. Through a series of events, she becomes the care-giver of 11-year-old Clare, daughter of her boyfriend and his ex-wife. Cuervo voices chapters narrated by Cornelia, and Jenny Ikeda--far more restrained--takes the ones narrated by Clare as the story twists to its sugary conclusion. M.O.
