Summer at the Kindness Cafe by Victoria Walters
2018/08/03  |  By:   |  Features  |  

Welcome to Brew, a cafe where kindness is almost as important as coffee… almost!

Meet the three women whose lives are about to change forever:

Abbie has fled London and the humiliation of not being able to make rent after being made redundant. Her sister, Louise, unlucky in love, has thrown herself into her career at the local hospital. And Eszter, who has travelled from Hungary with her daughter Zoe, hoping to fulfil her husband’s dying wish… to reunite his family.

This summer these three very different women are inspired by the random acts of kindness written up on the Kindness Board at Brew, and decide to make a pact to be kinder to others and to themselves…

Can a little bit of kindness really change your life? Eszter, Abbie and Louise are about to find out!
