Publisher's Summary

Bea has just lost her husband after 30 years of marriage. To distract herself from grief, she throws herself into her work running the Reservoir Street Kitchen in Sydney's most fashionable district.
But then an email from a café-owner in Edinburgh prompts her to take a trip to Scotland in the depths of winter - a journey of self-discovery into a secret past that she has tried to forget.

Absolutely delightful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Most definitely.the problems with a teenage Flora are so realistic and Beas talks with her are so wise.Its so warm and cosy its like hugging a cup of hot chocolate.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Christmas Café?

When Bea finds out who Alex is.

Have you listened to any of Federay Holmes’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I hope I can find some more books read by her.what a soothing calming voice she has.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not one moment but each talk between Bea and Flora .

Any additional comments?

If Amanda Prowse can write stuff like this she should be a councellor I am sure she could sort out my family's problems if this book is anything to go by.

A but twee for me

Having just discovered Amanda prowse - I was a little bit disappointed with this, it's a nice story but a bit predictable and not as good as "another love" or "my husbands wife". However it was pleasant enough.
