Staff Review: "The Cafe by the Sea" by Jenny Colgan


What do you do when you're forced to return to a place you ran away from during the hardest time in your life? Years before, Flora had fled the small Scottish island where she was born, vowing never to return. Instead she's been living in London, trying to ignore that fact that she's in love with her boss. When she's sent by said boss back to her tiny island for work, Flora is confronted by her past head-on. Navigating family life once more and the hostility of those she used to call neighbors, Flora begins to heal the wounds of her past as she renovates a cozy cafe by the sea. This is great summer read!
